Why do some people seem to age quicker than others? What causes neurological ageing?
The Lothian Birth Cohorts (LBC) is a research group based in Psychology at The University of Edinburgh and it has more than 20 years of research on how our brain and thinking skills change throughout life, and why some brains age better than others. This activity offers five stops around The University of Edinburgh, tracing the history and findings of the LBC.
On this self-led walk around George Square and the local neighbourhood you will hear about the project’s unique history and its people, and learn about the secrets of healthy cognitive ageing. Each stop is linked to digital resources, including videos, podcasts, and images about LBC studies, its history, people and findings.
We recommend you allow about 45-60 minutes for this experience.
