Event title: Webinar - How do we see depth and focus our attention as we get older?
Aimed at: Adults aged 60 and over
When: 23rd & 25th February 2021
Organisers: Rumandeep Hayre & Hannah Broadbent (

Event description: Adults aged 60 and over are invited to attend this free online webinar hosted by researchers from the School of Psychology. In everyday life, we often focus our attention and see depth around us so that we know when it is safe to cross the road or avoid tripping when walking up stairs. In this webinar, there will be two talks, the first is on how depth perception changes as we get older and impacts how me might climb steps or stairs. The second talk will look at how attention changes as we age and the effects this could have on our daily lives. This is a great way to learn something new, have a conversation and ask questions from experts in the field.
