  • The Paradox of Overnutrition in Aging and Cognition

    Tuesday, December 4, 2012 | 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM
    The New York Academy of Sciences

    Presented by The Sackler Institute for Nutrition Science

    This conference is aimed at presenting cutting-edge research on linking overnutrition, aging and cognition. While overnutrition and cognition must be well defined and appropriately measured for the elderly population, they may also serve as indicators for accelerated aging and for assessing potential risk factors. Various strategies including the use of imaging and metabolic markers, as well as the identification of predictors in the aging process such as aging-related physical impairment need to be employed to understand the linkages between overnutrition and the aging process especially its cognitive aspects. This symposium will explore these linkages from a clinical and epidemiological perspective. The audience includes students and scientists working on aging and nutrition research and their application in preventive and curative medicine.

    Reception to follow.
