HART Bingocize® research visit

matthew_shakeHART and the School of Sport & Exercise Science were delighted recently to welcome to the Human Performance Centre Dr Matthew Shake, Associate Professor of Psychological Sciences in the Ogden College of Science and Engineering, West Kentucky University (WKU). Matthew’s research focuses on cognitive changes in older adulthood, particularly aspects of executive function and language processing. His grant-funded work on Bingocize® – in collaboration with Dr K Jason Crandall of WKU, examines the benefits of a community-based exercise intervention for older adults’ cognitive abilities and psychological well-being.  Bingocize® is an evidence-based health promotion program/mobile app combining exercise, health education, and the game of bingo. HART’s Hannah Henderson, Geoff Middleton, PhD student Anna Mongan, and Georgia Clay, are currently involved in researching Bingocize® involvement in various Lincolnshire-based programmes.
