Frontiers of BrainHealth Lunch Lecture Series 

The Center for BrainHealth invites scientists to share their scientific study with students and other researchers at the Frontiers of BrainHealth Lunch Lectures. The lectures are heavily science focused and are not intended for a lay audience. Lectures to be simulcast among UTD affiliated locations.

The lectures are free, but you must register to reserve your seat. Lunch is served at 11:45 AM.

Aron Barbey, PhD - Scientific Innovations for Healthy Brain Aging

Dr. Barbey will present his survey of recent advances in the scientific effort to enhance learning and decision making through cognitive neuroscience-directed interventions, evaluating the efficacy of experimental protocols that assess specific types of cognitive activity, non-invasive brain stimulation, physical fitness training, and nutritional intervention. He will highlight the strengths and promise of multi-modal approaches that view the human mind through a multi-faceted lens, incorporating cognitive neuroscience, physical fitness, and nutritional interventions that deliver powerful synergistic effects. He will show how the scientific effort to improve the mind is fundamentally changing our understanding of human intelligence – supporting new perspectives about its dynamic and adaptive nature and motivating new methods to promote healthy brain aging through the design of comprehensive and tailored protocols of intellectual stimulation, social engagement, physical exercise, and nutritional intervention.
