Podcast episode with Mara Mather

In this episode of “Lessons in Lifespan Health,” Mara Mather discusses her work in examining how emotion impacts our attention and memory, and how studying a small brain region called the locus coeruleus can shed light on how our brains change as we age.  Her research currently explores how we can use biofeedback and heart rate variability to better regulate the mind-body relationship and even slow down the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.

Hosted by the USC Leonard Davis School of Gerontology, Lessons in Lifespan Health is a podcast about the science — and scientists — improving how we live and age.
