Join us on June 14 at noon for the next McGill Cares webcast to support informal caregivers. During candid, 30-minute interviews with leading experts, Claire Webster explores topics related to caring for a loved one with dementia. 

Sex and Gender Differences in Brain Aging and Memory 

Maria Natasha Rajah, PhD, is Full Professor and Vice-Dean, Academic Affairs at the McGill University Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences and the Douglas Research Centre.  She conducts sex and gender research in the cognitive neuroscience of memory, aging and dementia prevention. She also studies how biological sex assigned at birth, gender, and social determinants of health affect brain health and memory over the adult lifespan. 

Prof. Rajah will talk about the differences between how men and women’s brains age, and the implications in terms of developing Alzheimer’s disease. 

This webcast is free and available in English.

McGill Cares is supported by the Amelia Saputo Community Outreach for Dementia Care.
