Ger 344: Aging in the 21st Century
In this course we will study physiological, neurobiological, and
behavioral changes that occur during the normal process of aging. Our
classes will focus on: 1/ the biological mechanisms involved in the
aging process; 2/ how aging changes our brain and behavior; and 3/ how
physical activity and diet contribute to healthy aging. Students will
learn how aging changes our motor and cognitive performance and its
impact on daily life. There will be readings and videos in class to
discuss about to what extent the aging process can be
delayed by our lifestyle and the consequences of that for our present
and future societies.
