Healthy and unhealthy brain aging [Video[Download Slideshow]

Presenter: Dr. Kristoffer Rhoads, PhD; Clinical Neuropsychologist, UW Memory and Brain Wellness Center/ADRC. This talk was presented at the Native Alzheimer’s Disease Resource Center for Minority Aging Meeting, hosted by the Initiative for Research and Education to Advance Community Health (IREACH) of Washington State University on April 29–30, 2019. 

Objective: Review age-associated changes in cognitive functioning with an emphasis on biological as well as sociocultural determinants of normative neurocognitive function. Specific attention will be paid to differences in prevalence of risk factors for abnormal cognitive aging across the lifespan, cultural bias in neurocognitive measures and issues around appropriate normative data sets.
