How does an 80-85 year old brain age?

With age, our brain changes the way it uses energy. It experiences slower information processing, poorer memory, attention deficits, and so on.

The CogNeuro Lab at the Turner Institute for Brain and Mental Health at Monash University is once again seeking participants to help them in their continuing research to better understand the mechanisms of brain ageing, and to explore new ways we might be able to keep our brains younger and healthier for longer.

This time the call is for participants aged 80 – 85 years old.

A $100 Coles-Myer voucher will be provided to each participant.

Check out the flyer below. Register via QR code, web link, or email for more information.

We also need a comparison group aged 30-40 years of age.

The CogNeuro Lab is also looking at people aged 30-40 years old to test as a comparison group to the older groups. If you know any friends or family who would be interested in contributing to ageing research, please refer them to this post – Monash University would love to have them!
