Event description

Description

The Hotchkiss Brain Institute is pleased to present the 8th annual Bryan Kolb Lecture in Behavioural Neuroscience on Friday, September 15, 2017 with special guest Dr. Carol Barnes. Following the lecture, we invite all members, trainees, staff and guests to join us for the HBI Welcome Back Wine & Cheese reception.

Lecture Title:
Impact of age on neural circuits critical to memory

The central goal of Dr. Barnes’ research program is to understand how the brain changes during the aging process and what the functional consequences of these changes are on information processing and memory. Her research program involves behavioral, electrophysiological and molecular biological approaches to the study of young and aged rodents and non-human primates. This work provides a basis for understanding the basic mechanisms of normal aging in the brain and sets a background against which it is possible to assess the effects of pathological changes such as Alzheimer's disease.

Lecture begins at 3:00 pm
Theatre 4, Health Science Centre, Foothills Campus
