Promoting Healthy Cognitive Aging Overview:

We now recognize the importance of lifestyle behaviors in promoting healthy cognitive aging and preventing dementia. However, less is known about the impact of lifestyle interventions, such as physical activity, on cognitive outcomes in those at risk for dementia, such as those with mild cognitive impairment and cerebrovascular disease. In this presentation, we will highlight past and recent research from the Aging, Mobility, and Cognitive Neuroscience Lab at the University of British Columbia that focus on increasing our understanding of how we can promote cognitive health in at-risk older adults.
