Frontiers Of Neuroscience: A Lecture Series

WINNIPEG, MB – In collaboration with the National Research Council, The University of Winnipeg Division of Continuing Education is offering a new Neuroscience Lecture Series that is open to all, running each Thursday evening from September 24 – November 26, 2009, from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm.

People can register for individual lectures at $25 each, or register for the whole series of 10 lectures for the discounted rate of $225.

Scientists from The University of Winnipeg and the NRC Institute for Biodiagnostics will describe state-of-the-science imaging and research techniques used to explore brain structure and function. Results of ongoing experiments and clinical investigations will show how basic research is expanding our understanding of brain function, in both health and disease. In addition, two lectures will highlight the role of experience and training in reprogramming brain circuits to restore and maintain cognitive function, and to promote health and recovery from disease. A participatory Q&A session will follow each lecture.
