Wed 28th Sept Dr Sophie Hardy When it's just on the Tip of your Tongue: What causes word-finding failures in old age
We all experience those moments from time-to-time when we feel like a word is just on the tip of our tongue - we are sure that we know the word, but we just can't recall it. These are temporary word finding failures, known as tip-of-the-tongue states, and many people report that their experiences of these increase as they get older. Sophie's research aims to better understand changes in language production as we age. Her talk will focus on the causes of word-finding difficulties as we get older and discuss some emerging evidence that suggests physical fitness may be an important factor in reducing tip-of-the-tongue states. She also plans to include some small interactive elements in which we can try out some of the tasks that are typically used in language and ageing experiments.
