Neuroscientist Wendy Suzuki to Deliver Science on the Square Lecture—April 2 at NYU

March 10, 2014
N-243

New York University neuroscientist Wendy Suzuki, an expert on memory and cognition, will deliver “Brain Plasticity Two Ways,” on Wed., April 2, 4:30 p.m. at NYU’s Center for Genomics and Systems Biology (CGSB) Auditorium (12 Waverly Place, between Greene and Mercer Streets).

The lecture is part of NYU’s “Science on the Square,” a series of lectures focusing on scientific topics of interest to the general public and sponsored by NYU’s Dean for Science.

Suzuki will describe her research, which has elucidated the brain areas and patterns of activity that underlie our ability to form and retain new long-term memories. She will also discuss her more recent studies that examine how aerobic exercise can enhance our learning, memory, cognition, and mood.

Suzuki’s work focuses on the brain’s plasticity—it’s ability to change, grow and be influenced by our surroundings throughout life. She has received the Lindsley Prize from the Society for Neuroscience, the Troland Research Award from the National Academy of Sciences, and the Golden Dozen Teaching Award from NYU, among other honors.

The lecture is free and open to the public. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, call 212.998.3800. Reporters interested in attending must RSVP to James Devitt, NYU’s Office of Public Affairs, at 212.998.6808 or james.devitt@nyu.edu. Subways: N/R [8th Street], 6 [Astor Place].
