Cay Anderson-Hanley, associate professor of psychology, gave a talk, “Move it and Use it or Lose it? The Role of Mental and Physical Exercise in Cognitive Aging," for the Department of Psychology's Seminar Series at the National University of Ireland in Galway. Results were presented from a pilot of the Aerobic and Cognitive Exercise Study started when Anderson-Hanley was a Fulbright Scholar in Ireland in 2013. Irish older adults from Galway exercised using a cyber-cycle at the St. Francis Adult Day Program. Collaborators include Nikita Shah '14 and Ariella Yazdani '15, who traveled to NUIG to assist with the research for the past two years.
