NYU Neural Scientists Ask "How Does Exercise Change Your Brain?" in Two Lectures, Oct. 28 & Nov. 4

October 21, 2009
N-98, 2009-10

New York University’s Wendy Suzuki, a professor in the Center for Neural Science, will present two lectures addressing the impact of exercise on the brain: “The Effects of Exercise on Brain Structure” (October 28, 6-7:45 p.m.) and “The Effects of Exercise in Stress, Depression, and Aging” (November 4, 6-7:45 p.m.). Both lectures will take place at NYU’s Palladium Dorm (140 East 14th Street, 3rd Floor).

Each session combines exercise with a scientific explanation of its neurological impact. Both begin with an optional hour (6-7 p.m.) of high-impact aerobic exercise (intenSati) to take advantage of the mood motivation and cognition boosting benefits that exercise brings, then continue with a 45-minute lecture (7-7:45 p. m.) where Suzuki will describe the many benefits of exercise on brain structure, function, and chemistry as well as its effects in various neurological conditions, such as depression.

Reporters interested in attending must RSVP to James Devitt, NYU’s Office of Public Affairs, at 212.998.6808 or james.devitt@nyu.edu.
