Course Description

PSYC 168
Memory and Aging
Fall

This course offers a comprehensive overview of how memory changes as a function of normal aging and what cognitive functions are more resistant to age changes. We will explore how factors such as attention changes, neuropsychological changes, aging stereotypes, cultural influences, and emotional regulation affect memory in old age. We will also discuss some of the implications of age-related changes in memory for everyday life and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.
Offered every other year beginning 2020-21.
