Episode 45: Memory & Brain Training for Aging Well w/ Dr. Rob Winningham
In this episode, Dr. Armstrong is joined by Dr. Rob Winningham to discuss memory and cognitive function with aging. Like with physical performance it is suggested that we “choose out parents wisely.” In addition to what we inherit from our parents, we discuss the role of epigenetics and the things that we can do (e.g., diet, exercise, brain games, etc.) to prevent or delay dementia and cognitive decline and we seek to age well.Dr Winningham received his Ph.D. in neuroscience from Baylor University. He joined the faculty at Western Oregon University in 2000 where he served as a Professor of Psychology and Gerontology. He helped create the Gerontology Department, when he was Division Chair of the Behavioral Sciences Division. He has served as the Dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and is currently the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs at Western Oregon University. His scholarship has focused on memory and aging for the past 30 years. He has trained thousands of professionals to offer high quality cognitive rehabilitation and therapy programs. In addition to publishing many peer-reviewed articles in the area of human memory and aging, Dr. Winningham has been invited to given well over 1500 invited presentations about memory and aging at various conferences and workshops. His book, Train Your Brain: How to Maximize Memory Ability in Older Adulthood was published by Baywood Publishing and his latest book is entitled Cranium Crunches, both of which can be found on Amazon.Have questions you want answered and topics you want discussed on "Aging Well"?
