“The Aging Brain” is the topic for the March Neuro Night forum, scheduled at 6 p.m., Tuesday, March 17.
Time passes and time affects the human brain’s anatomy and functions, from slowed reflexes to risk for dementia. Oklahoma Center for Neuroscience invites the community to spend some quality time learning about the aging brain and what might be done to minimize the effects of aging on the brain.
