‘What Keeps You Sharp?’ Heriot-Watt University research survey

Posted on

What Keeps You Sharp? survey launched

People often think of changes in their thinking skills with age in terms of decline.

While some people do experience these changes, others do not.

What Keeps You Sharp? is a nationwide survey being led by researchers at Heriot-Watt University about your beliefs and attitudes to how thinking skills might change with age.

Heriot-Watt University researchers also want to know if you think there are things we can do to maintain or improve thinking skills as we grow older.
