Enhancing Neural Plasticity to Enhance Functional Recovery from Neurological Injuries and Disease - CVL Science Luncheon Series Monday, Feb 26
(12 p.m. - 1 p.m.) Location: The Center for Vital Longevity.

Enhancing Neural Plasticity to Enhance Functional Recovery from Neurological Injuries and Disease with Robert Rennaker, PhD, Department of Bioengineering, UT Dallas.

The goal of cognitive psychology and neuroscience is to understand the mind and brain, and in practice this means studying specific components of cognition, such as attention, perception, learning, and memory. Often, though, these components are studied in isolation, and we risk missing the forest for the trees. The overarching theme of our research is that cognitive processes are inherently interactive, and that exploring their behavioral and neural interactions can be an especially effective way to understand how they work.

PLEASE NOTE: RSVP is appreciated and lunch will be provided.

Held in the 8th floor conference room at:
Center for Vital Longevity
1600 Viceroy Drive
Suite 800
Dallas, TX 75235
