Dr. John Gunstad, director of the Applied Psychology Center at Kent State University, will be guest speaker for the Stow-Glen Speaker Series, "Lunching & Learning."

The Feb. 22 lunch event is free for local seniors and will be in Cedar Hall on the campus of Stow-Glen Retirement Village, 4285 Kent Road, Stow. Doors open at 11:30 a.m. Speaker and food service begin at noon.

In his lecture, "5 ½ Ways to Boost Your Brain Power, But Only for Those Over 65," Gunstad will discuss how aging and disease affect the brain’s neuro-cognitive function. Gunstad is a leader in the field, researching the full capacity of the brain, especially as people age.

His current study at Stow-Glen focuses on the use of probiotics and brain health.

"Lunching & Learning" is a free luncheon on the fourth Thursday of each month. It is designed to bring the seniors of the greater Stow area together for fellowship, lunch and an educational speaker.
