We will continue our study of Brain Science with a session on the Aging Brain. Shirley Jowell will recount her experiences with the UC Davis brain studies. See below for some interesting articles we will discuss. 

We will plan for our March meeting – suggested topic? (And, for this time as well, suggested date). And, be forewarned – a Village photographer will join us to take pictures of our group.
