HDFS study aims to advance field

A paper by HDFS PhD candidate Eric Cerino and Professor Karen Hooker, in collaboration with colleagues at Oregon Health & Sciences University (OHSU), was just published in The Gerontologist. The research team re-examined data from a six-week, conversation-based intervention conducted by co-author Hiroko Dodge at OHSU and found that the cognitive benefits from the intervention depended on levels of personality traits. Their hope is that this work will help advance the field toward more personalized approaches to cognitive health in older adulthood.
