About Can taking up a new activity help our thinking skills as we age?

Can taking up a new activity help our thinking skills as we age?

Are you aged 65 or over? Do you want to take up a new activity?
As we get older, some of us might experience changes in our thinking or memory skills. Research has suggested that taking up a new activity, especially one we’ve never done before, might help maintain our thinking skills.

We are a research team at Heriot-Watt University exploring how taking up a new activity might benefit our thinking skills and wellbeing. We are looking for people aged 65 and over in Edinburgh and the Lothians to take part.

If you or someone you know might be interested, or you would like some more information, please contact us on 0131 451 8009 or healthyageing@hw.ac.uk. We’ll give you full details about the study and answer any questions you might have.

You can also find some more information about the research at here

We look forward to hearing from you!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Can taking up a new activity help our thinking skills as we age? are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
