Nationally known researcher to speak on brain health

Tuesday, August 21. 11 am and 3 pm, Touchmark, 840 SW Touchmark Way, (adjacent to Southwest Barnes and Leahy), free and open to the public, RSVP required.

Can you train your brain to delay memory problems associated with aging? What can you do if someone in your family is already experiencing memory issues or living with dementia? Rob Winningham, Ph.D., a professor in the Psychological Sciences and Gerontology departments at Western Oregon University (WOU), will answer these questions during two presentations at Touchmark in the West Hills.

Winningham’s first presentation will be at 11 am. He will discuss mounting evidence that lifestyle factors, including staying mentally active, can delay memory problems. He will also highlight recent research related to the “use it or lose it” theory of memory and aging as well as share cognitive stimulation interventions that can be used to exercise targeted regions of the brain. Finally, he will present the latest research on the effects of physical exercise, nutrition, and social support on the likelihood of developing memory problems.

Winningham’s second presentation will be at 3 pm. In addition to providing brain-health ideas similar to those in the first presentation, he will offer practical tips for families who have a loved one living with dementia. “The take-home message is optimistic and motivating,” says Winningham. “There are many practical things all of us can do to maximize our memory abilities.”

Winningham has over 20 years of experience researching human memory, mostly focusing on older adults and ways to enhance mental functioning and quality of life. At WOU, he has served as Dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and Chair of the Behavioral Sciences Divisions. He has trained thousands of professionals, published many peer-reviewed articles about human memory and given more than 1,000 presentations at conferences and workshops. His books include “Train Your Brain: How to Maximize Memory Ability in Older Adulthood” and “Cranium Crunches.”

The presentations are open to the public, and there is no charge, but seating is limited. To RSVP, call 503-954-1640 by August 16.
