The first Canine Cognition and Aging Conference was held in 1995 with the goal of allowing researchers to discuss ideas related to the development of a canine model of cognition and aging. This year’s meeting will focus on expanding the cognitive and neurobiological characterization of canine aging, with a focus on the aged dog as a natural model of Alzheimer's disease progression for the assessment of new therapeutic measures.


There will be three sessions with the following topics:
  • Features of Canine Cognitive and Neurobiological Aging
  • The Aged Dog as a Translational Model for Therapeutic Interventions
  • Panel Discussion: Validation of the aged dog model: Where are we and where should we go?

Poster Submissions & Papers

The meeting will take place on Friday, November 8, and will include invited speakers. Poster submissions will be subject to a review process. In order to be considered, please submit a 250 word abstract to by November 1, 2013.
