Boosting Brain Power: New Insights

Two world-leading brain researchers will speak about the latest insights on how the brain changes as we age, what we can do about it, and new treatment opportunities for Alzheimer’s disease.

Dr. Max Cynader, Director of the Brain Research Centre and Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health, will share the latest research from brain scientists that suggests useful ways to improve brain function.

Dr. Howard Feldman, Executive Associate Dean Research, UBC Faculty of Medicine, will reflect on the effects of aging on learning and memory. He will discuss findings that help reveal when early Alzheimer’s disease begins and provide an update on emerging treatment opportunities.

This event is sponsored by the Canadian Association for Neuroscience, the Brain Research Centre, and UBC.
