MARQUETTE Ã‚– Distinguishing the normal aging process from cognitive disorders will be the topic of the next psychology colloquium at Northern Michigan University. It will be held at 3:10 p.m. Friday, Oct. 31, in Gries Hall room 167.
The discussion is titled, Ã‚“Issues in Cognitive Neuropsychology: Understanding the Usual Consequences if Normal Aging.Ã‚” Presenters are Shianna Stanczak and Andrew Tomlinson, both senior psychology majors, and Yves Turgeon, a post-doctoral fellow.
Over the past two years, the Cognition and Aging Research Team has been studying the difference between normal aging and aging that is cognitive, or all in the head. They will show that although the tests performed by certain groups produced different results, the underlying brainwork was similar.
