Cognitive Reserves and Diagnosing Cognitive Decline

Conducted by:

Dr. Odelia Elkana / School of Behavioral Sciences

Highly educated people have large 'cognitive reserves' that protect them from cognitive decline and postpone the symptoms of dementia. These individuals usually score results within the normal range in Screening Tests. Dr. Elkana’s longitudinal research identifies tests that are sensitive to cognitive decline within this population group and demonstrates the phenomenon of 'cognitive reserves' and the importance of comprehensive neuropsychological diagnosis.
