ELON, N.C. (AP) - An Elon University professor will lead a three-year study designed to help researchers better understand memory impairment in older adults.

A statement from the school says associate professor Amy Overman will collaborate with Nancy Dennis of Penn State University on the study, which is being funded by a grant of nearly $344,000 from the National Institutes of Health.

The project is expected to provide information to develop strategies that can help overcome memory difficulties experienced by healthy older adults, and also become a key to identifying the earliest signs associated with the onset of Alzheimer’s disease and other memory-related disorders.

Overman has worked extensively with students doing undergraduate research. Her primary research focuses on memory and other cognitive processes in older and younger adults at both behavioral and neural levels.
