Greater Victoria residents can learn how to maintain and promote their cognitive health at the University of Victoria's (UVIC) IdeaFest. On March 7 the Integrative Lifespan Lab from UVIC will present an interactive exhibit that will showcase mobile cognitive health trackers, smell testing and near-infrared spectroscopy brain imaging. Participants will learn how exercises, sleep and blood pressure all effect the cognitive abilities of the brain.

Andrea Piccinin, co-director of the lab, will run the event along with a team of PhD students. They will share the latest research in cogitative health and the factors associated with cognitive decline.

The free event will take place Saturday, March 7 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m at the UVIC campus in the Cornett Building, room B335.
