SE Seminar on basic- and practice deepening: 'Super Agers' - What can be done to maintain a high level of cognitive abilities in ageing?' - 720472
We all know that cognitive abilities change over the lifespan, which typically increase towards adulthood and decline in ageing. However, another well known phenomenon in ageing is that there are large interindividual differences in cognitive abilities with some older adults - so called 'super agers' - maintaining a cognitive level typical for 20 year olds. We try to understand which factors in the brain and in lifestyle might be crucial for allowing people to be 'super agers', and how we might strive to become super agers ourselves. The seminar will be in German.
