Behavioural Support Rounds: ADHD in older adults and relationships with neurodegenerative syndromes


ADHD in older adults and relationships with neurodegenerative syndromes

Brandy Callahan is an Associate Professor of Psychology and Canada Research Chair at the University of Calgary. She holds a PhD in Clinical Neuropsychology from Université Laval, and completed clinical and research fellowships at Baycrest and Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centres. Her research program integrates neuropsychology and physiological biomarkers to better understand age-related brain changes in adults and seniors with complex medical and psychiatric histories. A major focus of this work is to determine mechanistic interactions between normal aging, ADHD, and neurodegenerative disease.

By the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:
• Identify non-neurodegenerative causes of memory impairment in mid- and later life
• Recognize signs of degenerative vs. non-degenerative causes of cognitive impairment
• Describe links between ADHD and neurodegenerative disorders in aging
