The Healthy Aging Research Program (HARP): What have we learned after (nearly) ten years?
HARP began in 2008 as a single student’s thesis project investigating age-related changes in our ability to remember to carry out our intentions in the future (e.g., to return a phone call in 30 minutes). Over the intervening years it has expanded its focus to multiple cognitive skills that influence whether older adults remain independent and with high quality of life in their advancing years. Key results and ongoing studies will be discussed.
