Carnegie Mellon University invites you to a Faculty Dialogues presentation and discussion: The Neuroscience of the Aging Brain
Thursday, June 17, 2021
4-5 p.m. ET
As we grow older, our brains alter in crucial and life-altering ways.
Join Barbara Shinn-Cunningham, director of CMU’s Neuroscience Institute, and other faculty experts to explore what happens inside our brains as we age and how a deeper understanding of late-onset diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s can shape future research and potential treatment.
