On Tuesday, Jan. 31 from 2 - 3 pm, graduate students from Ryerson University's Cognitive Aging Lab, will demonstrate techniques to improve memory and mental abilities, in a presentation called: Memory & Aging: Strategies to Improve Mental Abilities . The session will be held in the Beeton Auditorium on the main floor of Toronto Reference Library.
The Cognitive Aging Lab conducts research to better understand age-related changes in cognition (e.g. attention, memory, and learning) and the associated brain functions. All are welcome to this free and interactive demonstration.
Watch as well for Nutrition and Brain Function. This is another Thought Exchange lecture about the brain, but this one looks at the relationship between diet and cognitive change. Find out how food choices can play a role in the way your brain ages.
Dr. Carol Greenwood, Baycrest senior scientist and Department of Nutritional Sciences, University of Toronto, presents her research on the relationship between diet and brain function on Thursday, Feb. 23, 1 - 3 pm at the Beeton Auditorium, Toronto Reference Library.
