This course will review the activities you can undertake to keep your memory and thinking as sharp as possible with aging. We will begin with a discussion of the cognitive changes that occur in normal aging, and then consider the role of intellectual engagement, physical exercise, socialization, and a variety of other pursuits that can help maintain good mental functioning. Finally, we will review the signs that more serious cognitive difficulty may be developing. Assigned materials will be made available as Pdfs on Google Drive.
