A New Brain Fitness Club will start in 2014
Several people have requested that we bring back the Brain Fitness Program. While there are still some extra costs involved, overall costs have been reduced significantly. We believe that it is now appropriate to provide, once again, a Brain Fitness Club for seniors. We think it will be an opportunity you won’t want to miss. This is an opportunity to participate in activities that can improve your cognitive abilities, particularly those related to visual and audio perception and memory.
There will be a free lecture entitled “Introduction to a New Brain Fitness Club at the AGE Computer Lab” given by Kent Stewart on Monday, January 13, 2014 from 9:30-11:30am. This free lecture will be repeated on Monday, January 27, 2014 from 9:30-11:30am.
This two-hour lecture will present a brief discussion of brain plasticity followed by an overview of those activities known to or perceived to, improve cognitive function. Special emphasis will be given to use of the BrainHQ computer-based programs that have been shown to improve brain function in seniors. The promising results from the AGE pilot brain fitness will presented. Students will be given some key references for improving brain function for seniors including book titles and web sites.
The lecture will also provide operational and administrative details for the proposed AGE Computer Lab’s Brain Fitness Club starting in February, which will be instructed by Kent Stewart.
