Presentation:  Brain Building: Keep Your Brain Fit & Combat Aging 

Summary: “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks" is a familiar saying, but science has proven that it isn’t true. Our brains grow throughout life, which gives us a great opportunity to offset the challenges of aging. This talk will discuss techniques that have been shown to boost brain power without medication and are easy, fun, and based on cutting edge research. These methods are helpful for all ages; the sooner you start, the greater the benefits!

Speaker: Dr. Ellen Clarke has been involved in cutting-edge scientific research on brain training, cognitive intervention, and performance enhancement techniques for many years. This work has been funded by highly regarded scientific agencies, such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH). She authors regular articles on gaining and maintaining an optimal brain at any age.

Dr. Clarke received her PhD in Human Factors and Applied Cognition from George Mason University, and her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Virginia. Her graduate research focused on combining psychology with neurotechnology, particularly molecular genetics and electroencephalography (EEG), to understand and improve cognitive function.
