Speakers

Dr. Jeremy Walsh is an Assistant Professor and Director of the Brain Exercise Enhancement Lab in the Department of Kinesiology at McMaster. Dr. Walsh’s research focuses on characterizing the mechanisms underlying the cognitive enhancing effects of exercise and dietary supplements. The overarching goal of Dr. Walsh’s research program is to apply this knowledge to develop interventions that optimize cognitive health and protect against neurological disease across the lifespan.

Dr. Geoff Coombs is a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Kinesiology. Dr. Coombs studies the changes in cerebrovascular structure and function that occur with aging, and how these factors contribute to cognitive decline. Additionally, he is interested in how lifestyle factors (e.g., physical activity, fitness) can improve brain health.
