Lectures and discussions explore the clinical, behavioral, and molecular aspects of brain aging processes in humans. Topics include: loss of memory and other cognitive abilitites in normal aging; neurodegenerative conditions such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases. Based on lectures, readings taken from the primary literature, and discussions. Students are expected to present topics based on their readings. One written mid-term test and one final examination. Alternate years.

Parkinson's disease is a chronic, progressive, degenerative disease of the central nervous system that produces movement disorders and changes in executive functions, working memory, visuospatial functions, and internal control of attention in affected cognitive areas. It is named after James Parkinson (1755-1824), an English neurologist who studied the disease.
