CANCELLED: From function to dysfunction- exploring the neuroscience of ageing and dementia
Date: 20 April 2020
Time: 10am – 4pm
Venue: Nt01 (Newton Building), North Holmes Road, Canterbury Campus
This one day masterclass aims to develop your understanding of the human brain, and how this may be impacted upon by the age related challenges which we all endure. There is focus upon brain development, structure, and functionality; before exploring how these may be altered, both as part of ageing and pathological processes. The leading putative models of Alzheimer’s disease will be discussed- uncovering how these may, or may not, lead to impaired cognitions. This masterclass is a combination of presentation, group discussion, and interactive exercises.
