August 1 #lrnchat: Learning and the Aging Mind

Many of us have witnessed the effects of age on the minds of parents and grandparents.  In this week’s #lrnchat we’ll explore this with an eye turned especially toward:  How can we protect our brains as we age? How can we continue to learn as we grow older?

Some prereading from the popular press, intended as food for thought:

New York Times: “Fast Time and the Aging Mind”
Daily Mail: “With Age Really Does Come Wisdom
Time: “Want to Prevent Aging? Learn a New Language”

#lrnchat happens Thursdays at 8:30 PM ET, 5:30 PM PT (that’s Friday mornings in Oz!). We hope to see you there!
