Kirk Erickson, PhD
University of Pittsburgh

What is the impact of physical activity on brain health? Psychologist Dr. Kirk Erickson delves into this question while exploring several methodological considerations related to how this topic is documented in scientific literature. Sharing recent research findings on exercise and brain health, he will also discuss evidence for mechanisms and moderators of these effects, demonstrating that, overall, engaging in regular exercise is an important modifiable lifestyle factor that carries significant consequences for learning, memory, and brain health in late adulthood.

The host for this event will be Daniel Krawczyk, PhD.

The spring 2024 season will be hybrid. Register free of charge for the season and join us for as many talks as you are able.
