Your Aging Brain – What’s Happening? A FREE Event Sep 22, 2015 @torontolibrary

Aging BrainCelebrate Science Literacy Week by expanding your knowledge about your brain!

As we get older, we often find that we’re not as mentally sharp as we used to be in our youth. What changes occur in the brain as we age, and is this normal? Severe impairment may also happen with age in the form of cognitive and motor deficits that can be hard to treat.

This presentation will provide an overview of Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease, the two most common neurodegenerative disorders. Topics include the biological bases of the diseases, symptoms, and available treatment options.

No scientific knowledge is needed to attend this event–all are welcome!

The talk is delivered by SciChat, a student-run adult outreach initiative by the Department of Immunology at University of Toronto.

Date: Tue Sep 22, 2015
