Senior lecturer in psychology, Dr Louise Brown Nicholls is paying Paisley & District u3a another visit.

The University of Strathclyde expert researcher will share current findings into brain health with u3a members on Thursday 2 November.


Several studies into older people’s thought processes suggest which indicators may positively impact on everyday lives. 

As Director of the Strathclyde Ageing Network, Louise Nicholls will review some key points from her own group’s research.  She also details how cognitive and memory outcomes and trends are being explored by a new Scottish Cognitive Ageing Network.

Monthly u3a meetings are held in the Salvation Army Hall, Mill Street (PA1 1ND) with refreshments served from 1.30pm.  Anyone not in full time work is welcome to attend.

u3a chair, Kathy O’Donnell remarked: “I’m sure many of us have memory lapses as we get older.  It’s simple things like not remembering someone’s name or forgetting a film title.  Our u3a was fortunate to first hear Louise speak about the psychology of ageing in 2018.  I’m sure she has new tips for brain health and wellbeing from the latest analysis.”

Dr Louise Brown Nicholls said: “I’m both delighted to be visiting Paisley u3a again and sharing our knowledge and experiences regarding how best to promote healthy and active ageing.  My key message will be that lifelong social, mental, and physical engagement can benefit us as we age.  Since u3a fosters this among its membership, I am excited to learn about the group’s activities and how it has thrived since I was here.”
