12 p.m. - 1 p.m. Location: 1600 Viceroy Drive, Dallas, TX 75235, 8th floor Conference room
Howard Eichenbaum, PhD, professor and director, Boston University, Center for Memory and Brain, will present "The hippocampus in space and time", on Monday, December 3rd.
Dr. Eichenbaum's Research Interests: The hippocampus plays a critical role in memory formation, but our understanding of just what the hippocampus does and how it performs its functions are still issues of considerable controversy. To enhance our knowledge about hippocampal function, we are pursuing a combination of neuropsychological studies of the nature of memory loss in animals with damage to the hippocampus and related cortical areas, and we are pursuing electrophysiological recording studies that seek to determine how information is represented by the hippocampus and associated cortical areas.
The Science Luncheon Series is sponsored by the Center for Vital Longevity.
Over the past century, scientific and medical advances have led to tremendous increases in longevity for our bodies. But these advances have not been matched by corresponding progress in the vitality of the aging brain. The Center for Vital Longevity at the University of Texas at Dallas exists to change that.
The Center for Vital Longevity is pleased to announce the schedule for its Fall semester Science Luncheon Series, a program of weekly talks that brings together UT researchers and outside experts to talk about recent developments in cognitive neuroscience and aging research.
Lunch will be provided. Talk begins at noon.
Due to limited space please RSVP to [email protected], no later than the Friday before each talk.
