Dr. Aage Moller's Colloquium, "The Brain is Plastic: For Good and for Bad"
Friday, Apr 20, 2012
10 a.m. - 11 a.m. Location: UTD, Green Hall (GR 4.428)
The School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences
presents: Dr. Aage Moller, Professor and the Schools first Distinguished Lecture in Behavioral and Brain Sciences; he also holds the Margaret Fonde Jonsson Endowed Chair in BBS.
Dr. Moller is known around the world for his innovative research on sensory systems and neural plasticity. This lecture will focus on neural plasticity, a feature of the brain important for childhood development, new skill acquisition and recovery after strokes and other injuries.
Research: Since completion of my doctor of medical sciences degree my research interests have concerned sensory systems, mainly hearing. More recently my interests have turned to systems neuroscience focusing on disorders of the nervous system. I have studied the role of neural plasticity in general and especially in the auditory system and its role in disorders that have tinnitus, hyperacusis and chronic pain as symptoms.
