This four-part course will focus on the general behavioral
geography (what part does what) of our most complex
organ, our brain. Through our discussions we will
better understand the normal aging process, particularly
in the brain. Normal cognitive changes typical with
aging versus cognitive decline due to disease (e.g.,
Mild Cognitive Impairment and Alzheimer’s Disease)
will be addressed. We will discuss behavioral and lifestyle
changes likely to help preserve the functioning of
the brain and learn that dementia is not inevitable with
increasing age.

Material presented will draw upon neuroscience
research, the instructor’s past clinical experience as an
academic clinical neuropsychologist (including actual
examples from patients) and the press and media,
including independent readings.

The course will be a blend of instruction and interaction
between the instructor and the participants.
