Pitt Science Outreach and the University of Pittsburgh's Alzheimer's Disease Research Center (ADRC) collaborated to put on a "Brain Fitness Bootcamp" at the 2015 Walk to End Alzheimer's Disease on Saturday, October 24th. The Brain Fitness Bootcamp was developed to increase the awareness about healthy brain aging and how to adolpt lifestyle choices that help fight Alzheimer's disease. Brain games, such as those desgined by Dr. Kirk Erickson's research laboratory at Pitt, and interactive puzzles were a hit with the 170 participants that visited the Mobile Science Lab at this event. Participants were also able to find out more information and sign up to participate in research studies carried out by the ADRC. Drs. Rena Robinson and Jennifer Lingler and Cleo Rydeski were among the ADRC staff assisting in the Brain Fitness Bootcamp. To learn more, visit
