Are you curious about how the brain changes as we age? Usually changes in our behaviour fall within the normal realm of aging, however sometimes people experience change beyond healthy aging. This course will highlight the effects of aging on our brain and our behaviours. It will also address how recent advances in neuroimaging techniques can be applied to the study of normal brain changes in aging as well as changes experienced with dementia. Instructor: Chantel Mayo (MSc) is currently pursuing her doctorate at the University of Victoria, specializing in Clinical Neuropsychology. Her research uses brain-imaging techniques such as magnetic resonance imaging to examine how the brain is affected by aging. The course is being live-streamed to Pender Island and Saturna.
