Peering into the Brain, What do we See?

By Elaine L. Bearer, M.D., Ph.D., FAAAS, FCAP

UNM Health Sciences Center

February 27, 2019 • 6:30pm – 8pm

 

The brain is a highly evolved complex opaque tissue, How the brain works to perceive the environment, process information, and coordinate responses remains a mystery. New approaches to imaging the brain at work while interacting with the environment include magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Join Dr. Bearer as she describes new research on the brain's response to life-threatening fear, how that may evolve to post-traumatic stress, and how Alzheimer's disease affects memory.

 

Dr. Bearer is a neuropathologist at the UNM School of Medicine and the Harvey Family Professor in Pathology. She works on the neurobiology of mental health, studying biomarkers of trauma and abuse in children and the cause of Alzheimer Disease. Her research also includes the perception and impact of music on the brain. She is a  Fellow of both the AAAS and the College of American Pathologists.

 

Cost: $8 nonmembers, $7 members, $5 students. Preregistration is encouraged or tickets can be purchased at the door the evening of the event (if seats are available). Questions: jayne.aubele@state.nm.us
