Activity Engagement in Cognitive Aging: A Review of the Evidence


Contributed by Christine Pogorzala


Yvonne Rogalski, assistant professor in the department of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology, will give a presentation at Longview about an article she and her former student, Muriel Quintana, recently had accepted for publication by the journal "Perspectives on Neurophysiology and Neurogenic Speech and Language Disorders."


This talk will explore the current evidence related to a number of interventions and products being promoted to prevent or reduce the risk of age-related cognitive decline.  These include: social and activity engagement; computerized brain training; physical activity; omega-3 fatty acids; polyphenols; alcohol; and coffee.  

This presentation will take place at Longview on Wednesday, June 26th at 7:00 PM in the Auditorium.

Anyone from the campus community who is interested in attending this presentation should contact Christine Pogorzala, the Ithaca College/Longview Coordinator, for directions and information on parking at 274-1051 or
