Comet Calendar, The Official Event Calendar for UT Dallas en-us This week's events for Behavioral and Brain Sciences at UT Dallas A Systems-level Understanding of Cognitive Aging in Pre-clinical Models - CVL Science Luncheon Series Monday, Feb 19
(12 p.m. - 1 p.m.) Location: The Center for Vital Longevity.

A Systems-level Understanding of Cognitive Aging in Pre-clinical Models with Sara Burke, PhD, Department of Neuroscience, University of Florida.

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 required and lunch will be provided.

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