Neuroscience experts will share research and insights on topics ranging from Alzheimer’s disease to the power of the teenage brain next month as part of the Center for BrainHealth’s four-part lecture series —The Brain: An Owner’s Guide.

The series will begin with the Emy Lou and Jerry Baldridge Lecture at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 7. Dr. Gregory Petsko, director of the Appel Alzheimer’s Disease Research Institute at Weill Cornell, will present “Alzheimer’s: Conquering the Coming Epidemic” at the Center for BrainHealth, 2200 W.

This lecture series is one of the greatest ways that we are able to interact with the community. Discoveries are being made at an exceptional pace. The opportunity for people to interact with the experts uncovering them is truly exciting.
