Join us for a freewheeling conversation as two leading neuroscientists discuss neuroplasticity and the connection between brain trauma and Alzheimer’s disease. They will also discuss their efforts to restore memory and enhance mental function in older adults.

Buck Faculty Dr. Dale Bredesen is internationally renowned for developing a groundbreaking, personalized protocol that is reversing memory loss in people with early- to-mid-stage Alzheimer’s disease.  He is also the Chairman and Chief Scientific Officer of MPI Cognition, established to reduce the global burden of dementia by preventing cognitive decline and reversing memory loss.

Dr. Michael Merzenich is the brain behind Posit Science and BrainHQ and the author of Soft-Wired:  How the New Science of Brain Plasticity Can Change Your Life.  He recently returned from the White House where he was lauded for receiving the 2016 Kavli Prize for Neuroscience.

Donations to support Dr. Bredesen’s la at the Buck Institute are welcomed.  The event is offered free of charge to the community.
