Booziotis Distinguished Lecture Series


Booziotis Distinguished Lecture Series

We welcome you to the annual Jean & Bill Booziotis Distinguished Lecture Series.

This event occurs annually in April and is open to the public.

The aim of the lecture series is to highlight distinguished visitors in the area of cognitive neuroscience to Dallas, and to facilitate the spread of their knowledge and research through our community.

Another key aspect of the lectures is that they form part of CVL’s public education mission, particularly among young adults students interested in science.

The first Jean and Bill Booziotis Distinguished Lecture in 2014 featured Dr. John Jonides, a memory researcher at the University of Michigan who discussed evidence-based ways one can train the mind to improve cognitive function.

The second lecture in 2015 featured Dr. Claudia Kawas, a geriatric neurologist and researcher in the areas of aging and dementia, from the University of California, Irvine. In her lecture, she decribed the cognitive and health traits of the "Oldest Old" -- people more than 90 years of age who are one of the fastest growing age groups in the United States.

The third lecture featured MIT's Dr. John Gabrieli, who highlighted what principles of brain organization are consistent across individuals, and how brains vary across people due to age, personality, and other dimensions of individuality.

The next Jean & Bill Booziotis Distinguished Lecture is at 7 p.m. on April 27, 2017. See below for details.
