Monthly News Roundup – December 2016

It’s that time again! This may be our last monthly newsletter before we make it quarterly or just regularly.

We published our second book review titled Alone Together: Why We Expect More from Technology and Less From Each Other as well as a great piece on dance and health-related quality of life. “Movement can not only improve quality of life, but certain exercises like Tai Chi, can reduce the risk of falls.”

Our selected journal article showed that increased P3 amplitude was linked to improved performance; however there was no direct association between adaptive training and improved performance.

From dance to cinema, painting to theatre, the Bealtaine festival showcases the talents and creativity of both first-time and professional older artists. The festival offers participants opportunities to discover talents, make unique and challenging work, communicate traditions between generations, and showcase dormant skills in a new outlet. This video shows the wide range of activities taking place at the festival.

And here’s a quote to keep you inspired till next time!
