Smart Ageing International Research Center will organize Colloquium on Brain Fitness and Smart Aging with AARP on 29th September 2010 at University of Central Florida, Orland, Fl.

Entertainment, such as games, TV programs, and movies, is indispensable for us to lead a fulfilling life in today’s society. Most households in Japan own a television, which they watch almost every day.? It is also reported that one in four Japanese people play video games at home on a daily basis. Such entertainment is an extremely influential medium that directly affects the human brain and mind and has an impact on the lifestyle of the viewer and player. However, the effects of such entertainment on the human mind and body have rarely been scientifically clarified thus far. Tohoku University Entertainment and Smart Aging Platform was established by integrating the seeds of various research fields in Tohoku University as of October 2009. In this meeting, members of the Platform will make following presentations, and exchange ideas with American scientists on those issues.
