"The Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience of Autobiographical Memory and Aging"

Presentation Learning Objectives:

1.  Understand why and how cognitive neuroscientists study autobiographical memory (i.e., memory for real life events) in older adults.
2.  Become familiar with current scientific knowledge of how autobiographical memory changes in individuals with mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s dementia, as well as why it might be an early warning sign of one’s risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
3.  Gain insight into the cognitive and neural mechanisms that contribute to normal and abnormal age-related changes in autobiographical memory.
