Optimising Cognitive Ageing: from 20 to 100 years old

Dr Yvonne Leung is a postdoctoral fellow at the School of Psychology (ARC Centre of Excellence in Population Ageing Research), UNSW. She has a background in cognitive psychology and her research focuses on statistical learning, memory, and cognitive ageing. She was formerly the coordinator of the International Centenarian Consortium-Dementia. She is experienced in harmonising internationally sourced data and examining factors associated with dementia and cognitive impairment in ethno-regionally diverse populations. Her current work (funded by ARC Centre of Excellence in Population Ageing Research) involves examining gender differences in cognitive ageing, cognitive reserve, and expectations regarding ageing.

In this talk, Dr Yvonne will share her recent findings on the lifestyle factors that promote healthy cognitive ageing with data collected locally and internationally from individuals aged 20 to 100 and beyond.
