Grantees in the News: Nancy Dennis on memory, aging, and the brain—in real time View MoreBACK

On August 21, Penn State News profiled former AFAR grantee Nancy Dennis, PhD and her research in memory and the aging brain. While most children remember the details of any given event with ease, aging adults find it more difficult. Dr. Dennis’s research, funded by AFAR, uses functional MRI technology to analyze the parts of the brain activated during memory in real-time—and how those change as we age.

Dr. Dennis was a 2010 recipient of an AFAR Biology of Aging award. She is currently an Assistant Professor of Psychology at Pennsylvania State University. Read more about her AFAR project here.
