A Systems-level Understanding of Cognitive Aging in Pre-clinical Models - CVL Science Luncheon Series http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220438530?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220438530?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS 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
Dallas, TX 75235

Mr. Fox will speak on his latest book, Let’s Move On: Beyond Fear & False Prophets. This event is FREE and open to the public. We look forward to seeing you at this event.

In his book, Let’s Move On: Beyond Fear & False Prophets, Vicente Fox issues both a denunciation of the current state of American politics and a call to unity and resistance in the face of rising ethnocentric and anti-democratic sentiments.

Bio: Vicente Fox was born in Mexico in 1942. Before his election as president of Mexico, he was a rancher, bootmaker, truck driver, Coca-Cola executive, democracy activist, congressman, and a governor of the state of Guanajuato. He lives at the farm his immigrant Ohio grandfather pioneered a century ago. Rancho San Cristobal is home to Mexico’s first presidential library, the Centro Fox academic thinktank for global democracy, and the antipoverty foundation Vamos Mexico, which the president founded with his first lady, Marta.
