The Center for BrainHealth’s four-part lecture series The Brain: An Owner’s Guide is scheduled to begin Feb. 7 and will offer neuroscience experts speaking on a variety of topics — from Alzheimer’s disease to the power of the teenage brain, the center said.
First up, the Emy Lou and Jerry Baldridge Lecture will be at 7 p.m., Feb. 7. Dr. Gregory Petsko, director of the Appel Alzheimer’s Disease Research Institute at Weill Cornell will talk about “Alzheimer’s: Conquering the Coming Epidemic.” The lecture will be at the Center for BrainHealth at 2200 W. Mockingbird Lane in Dallas.
“This lecture series is one of the greatest ways that we are able to interact with the community.”
Dr. Sandra Bond Chapman
Subsequent lectures will be at the same time and place on Feb. 14, 21, and 28. The Container Store will sponsor the series for the 10th straight year.
“This lecture series is one of the greatest ways that we are able to interact with the community,” Dr. Sandra Bond Chapman, Center for BrainHealth’s founder and chief director and Dee Wyly Distinguished University Chair at UT Dallas, said in a release. “Discoveries are being made at an exceptional pace. The opportunity for people to interact with the experts uncovering them is truly exciting. We are so grateful to the Container Store for making this possible.”
