The Aging Brain -- What We Know & What Can Be Done About it? -- Laura Cacciamani
Thursday, December 8, 2022  1pm - 3pm  Mt. Carmel Lutheran Church, SLO

$5 for LLCC Members $10 for Others

As a person gets older, changes occur in all parts of the body, including the brain.

   Certain parts of the brain shrink, especially those important to learning and other complex mental activities.

   In certain brain regions, communication between neurons (nerve cells) may not be as effective.

   Blood flow in the brain may decrease.

   Inflammation, which occurs when the body responds to an injury or disease, may increase.

A wealth of recent cognitive neuroscience research has focused on typical age-related changes in structure and function. What happens to our brains as we age? What does this mean for our cognition? And importantly, what can we do about it? This course will delve into the neuroscience behind age-related changes in cognition and explore various lifestyle and environmental factors that can potentially help mitigate cognitive decline that occurs with aging.

Dr Laura Cacciamani is in Department of Psychology & Child Development at California Polytechnic State University. Her research focuses on multisensory perception and memory (in other words, how we understand the world around us through our senses), using cognitive neuroscience methods such as fMRI and neurostimulation. After receiving her PhD, she had a postdoctoral fellowship at the Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute in San Francisco where she explored the neural underpinnings of tactile perception in the blind and visually impaired using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI)
