Glenmeadow Presentation to Explore Memory and Brain Health
AGAWAM — Glenmeadow Retirement will offer a presentation by Smith College Professor Mary Harrington on memory and brain health on Tuesday, Oct. 21 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Agawam Public Library, 750 Cooper St.
Harrington will draw on her expertise as a neuroscientist and share her findings on how to keep the brain healthy and active. Harrington’s discussion, “The Memory Muscle: Understanding the Brain and Keeping It Fit,” will include tips on improving memory through focus, practice, and social interaction. The free program will also feature accessible lessons on neuroscience.
Harrington has worked as an undergraduate professor at Smith College, specializing in the brain regulation of circadian rhythms and sleep, since 1987. Her research is supported by grants from the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation.
