Aging

By 2030, 1.4 million Canadians will be living with cognitive impairment and this trend will continue to increase

Cognitive impairments, compounded with mobility challenges, will affect the capacity of these individuals to enjoy an independent life. In the Memory Lab we study the brain mechanisms responsible for the memory decline that very often occurs during aging.

The aim is to understand how the brain changes through these processes and how these changes, in turn, modify our capacity to acquire and store information. See our aging projects here and help us by participating in our experiments.
