eBrain Journal Club - Biological Aging and the Future of Geriatric Psychiatry
We hope you will join us for the first eBrain Journal Club of 2018!
In past semesters, we’ve focused on brain changes in the presence of aging, but have largely not focused on aging itself. This semester, we will explore aging as a biological construct, its effects on the brain, how to measure it, and why some individuals may resist its effects. All are welcome to attend, regardless of discipline or expertise.
At the first session we will discuss the following article regarding biological vs chronological age and its importance in considering brain-related outcomes:
