Time: 12 noon to 12:45 p.m. EST

Location:  This seminar has already occurred. See recap here

Presented by: Dr. Adrian Owen, Canada Excellence Research Chair in Cognitive Neuroscience and Imaging at The Brain and Mind Institute, and author of Into The Gray Zone

Brain Insights From 25+ Years of Cognitive Testing

Join Dr. Adrian Owen, the Canada Excellence Research Chair in Cognitive Neuroscience and Imaging at The Brain and Mind Institute and author of Into The Gray Zone, on the lessons learned through 30 years of research on the brain. His research combines neuroimaging (MRI and EEG), with cognitive studies in brain-injured patients and healthy participants. The live webinar will focus on how he tests cognition and memory to the latest science regarding what affects the brain. Find out about the impact of sleep, fitness, brain exercises, music and nutrition on one of our most mysterious organs.

About the presenter

final-owen-1Dr. Owen has spent the last 20 years pioneering breakthroughs in cognitive neuroscience. His work has been published in prestigious journals such as The Lancet, Nature, Science and The New England Journal of Medicine.

Before assuming his Canada Excellence Research Chair at Western University, Dr. Owen was a senior scientist and assistant director of the Medical Research Council’s Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit in Cambridge, United Kingdom. His work there, and at the Wolfson Brain Imaging Centre at the University of Cambridge, used functional neuroimaging to explore attention, memory and control in brain-injured and healthy volunteers.

He revolutionized the assessment of brain function by harnessing the power of computerized cognitive testing, and is now the chief scientific officer at Cambridge Brain Sciences—a platform for tracking and optimizing cognitive performance.

Into the Gray Zone documents Owen’s ongoing quest to understand the relationship between brain, mind, and consciousness.  Read more about Adrian’s scientific work.
