Healthy Brain Aging: What We Know About Alzheimer’s Disease Risk Factors and Staving Off Cognitive Decline

Join us to learn about the neuroscience of the aging brain, what “normal” brain aging looks like, and how to stave off cognitive decline! The speaker, Dr. Brianne Bettcher, is a clinical neuropsychologist and director of the Colorado Aging Brain Laboratory at the University of Colorado Alzheimer’s and Cognition Center.

Dr. Bettcher’s research focuses on understanding what puts people at risk for Alzheimer’s disease and what protects aging adults from developing Alzheimer’s disease. Her research is built on the foundation that there is as much to learn from individuals who are healthy as there is from individuals who are experiencing cognitive decline.

During this presentation, Dr. Bettcher will discuss hot topics related to aging such as the heterogeneity of typical brain aging, cognitive reserve, how inflammation may affect the aging brain, late life concussion, and what lifestyle choices we can make to promote our own optimal brain aging. Additionally, she will share the projects her lab is currently working on to better understand healthy brain aging.
