What Keeps You Sharp?

This event has passed


People often think of the changes in thinking skills that occur with age in terms of decline. While some people do experience a decline, others do not.

What Keeps You Sharp? was a nationwide survey about people’s beliefs and attitudes to how thinking skills might change with age. At Castle Douglas Town Hall, Dr Alan Gow explored the questions “How do our thinking skills change as we age?” and “Do our lifestyles affect those changes?”. The audience heard what people think about their thinking skills, were shown how their beliefs matched those of the general public, and saw how all that matches current evidence.
