Project ID493
DescriptionResearch to develop a training programme to improve the use of memory for past events in healthy older adults. We are looking for volunteers over the age of 70 to take part in this autobiographical memory training. The results of this work may help us to develop a programme that could one day be used to prevent further decline in people with more significant memory problems. Autobiographical memory also has links to emotional and social functions, therefore we think that training this particular type of memory can have multiple benefits to overall wellbeing in later life.
