Maximizing Brain Health and Independence in Old Age

The University of Regina Centre on Aging and Health
2016-2017 Distinguished Lecture

Speaker: Maureen Schmitter-Edgecombe, PhD
Professor of Psychology, Washington State University

Abstract: Dr. Schmitter-Edgecombe will discuss research about optimizing health and wellness as people age, reducing dementia risk, and improving healthcare delivery through preventative interventions and smart and assistive technologies. Moreover, she will present research related to healthy brain aging behaviours and an intervention to promote sustained behaviour change, as well as work with aging assistive and intelligent technologies that can support activities of daily living functional independence, and provide real-time health care interventions.

Bio: Dr. Schmitter-Edgecombe has published more than 100 peer-reviewed publications investigating attention, memory, and executive function abilities, everyday functioning and the efficacy of interventions with aging, neurodegenerative disorders, and traumatic brain injuries. She has worked extensively with older adults and cognitively impaired populations. Dr. Schmitter-Edgecombe's research has been funded by over $10 million in grants from the National Institute of Health, the National Science Foundation, the Alzheimer's Association, the Department of Defense, the Life Sciences Discovery Fund, and the Washington State Attorney General's Office.
