The Aging Brain
This course is based on UM Prof. Thad Polk’s Great Courses video series of the same title, which he summarized in last January’s Distinguished Lectures presentation. In 12 lectures, Prof. Polk discusses The Aging Mind; What Changes; Strategies for an Aging Memory; Why Don’t We Live Forever; Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease; Is Aging a Disease; Parkinson’s Disease and Stroke; Aging and Brain Structure; Aging Well; Staying Active; Aging and Brain Function; Diet and Stress; Emotional Aging; and The Science of Immortality. We will view two lectures per session, with time for discussion after each lecture. Prof. Polk will attend one of the later sessions to answer questions. Craig Stephan is a retired physicist who has led several OLLI discussion groups.
