Event description

Description

The Brain Development Imaging Labs is teaming up with the Alzheimer's Association to host a series of talks on the brain and how to keep it healthy.

For centuries, we've known that the health of the brain and the body are connected. But now, science is able to provide insights into how to make lifestyle choices that may help you keep your brain and body healthy as you age. You will learn about research in the areas of diet and nutrition, exercise, cognitive activity and social engagement, and use hands-on tools to help you incorporate these recommendations into a plan for healthy aging.

Dr. Ryen McDonald has a PhD in Neurology and Neurosurgery with a focus on neurodegenerative disease and aging, molecular and cell biology, and signaling pathways.

The Alzheimer's Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer's care, support and research. Our mission is to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.

The Brain Development Imaging Labs is dedicated to the study of brain development and its disorders, with specific focus on autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). The primary techniques used by the lab are different types of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). It is conducting several studies comparing adults with autism to their typically developing peers.
