Events Calendar

Upcoming Events:
  • January 18, 2018: [Winter Lecture Series] Memory: How the Brain remembers and how to make Memories Stick. Learn about the cutting-edge of human memory research. Recent discoveries in neuroscience reveal significant insights into how we remember and how we can remember better. Evidence shows that the very act of remembering can sometimes help you retain information with important discoveries about why this happens. Research also shows the surprising ways that motivation and curiosity can influence memory. These studies lay the groundwork for practical ways to improve learning and memory in education and possibly in patients with neurological or psychiatric disorders that affect memory. A $5 suggested donation is collected at the entrance, no-host bar at 5:30 p.m. with the presentation starting at 6:00 p.m. Register here!
