IHA's Professor Cassandra Szoeke presents the first instalment of the 2017 Live Long Live Well Colloquium series - discussing predictive factors for verbal memory performance over decades of ageing with data from the Women's Healthy Ageing project.
The Institute for Health & Ageing (IHA) is pleased to present talks from colleagues and collaborators working across a range of disciplines relative to the pursuit of healthy and active ageing.
The risk of cognitive decline and dementia increases with age, however abnormalities in brain structure and function known to underpin cognitive decline can occur several decades prior to the onset of symptoms. It is in the preceding decades that an intervention to delay or prevent cognitive decline is most likely to be effective. It is imperative that successful interventions are therefore informed by an understanding of factors contributing to the progression of cognitive decline and dementia.
Professor Szoeke's presentation will examine the timing and exposure of factors contributing to memory performance in ageing, using data from the Women’s Healthy Ageing Project.
Where: Room 6.02, Level 6, 215 Spring Street Melbourne
