AFAR, the British Society for Research on Ageing and the Glenn Foundation for Medical Research, are proud to share an animation by data journalist David McCandless, sponsored by the Glenn Foundation for Medical Research. The clip explains how a “Better World for Older People is a Better World for Everyone," debunks myths on aging, and poses the economic and social benefits of improved healthspan. We encourage you to share the clip to help rally for more support for aging research. To download an MP4 file of the video, please click here.
Grantee Adam Gazzaley, MD, PhD, is using his recent neuroscience research to break new ground in developing therapies for memory in older adults. His work on multi-tasking in the aging brain has made headlines recently, and this new research is propelling his lab toward training brains with a video game. Dr. Adam Gazzaley is the founder of the Neuroscience Imaging Center at the University of California, San Francisco, and an associate professor of Neurology, Physiology and Psychiatry. He is a recipient of the 2005 Pfizer/AFAR Innovations in Aging Award and a 2002 Glenn/AFAR Postdoctoral Award.
