Leading Alzheimer’s and dementia researcher to offer strategies for successful aging
The UCI Libraries Speaker Series presents “Strategies for Successful Aging,” featuring Carl W. Cotman, director of the UCI Institute for Brain Aging and Dementia and professor of neurology. Cotman will talk about his research on the ability of the adult brain to form new connections (“synapses”) in response to injury and disease. His recent research suggests that exercise, environmental enrichment and antioxidants can contribute to successful brain aging.
DATE: Wednesday, October 11, 2006
TIME: 5:30 p.m. program; 6:30 p.m. reception
LOCATION: Langson Library, UCI campus
Cotman was one of the first researchers to make a connection between vitamin E and Alzheimer’s, and is now looking at how cells change in the brain to cause Alzheimer’s. In 2004, Cotman received the UCI Medal, the university’s highest honor, and in 2005, he and colleague Geoffrey Raisman received the Reeve-Irvine Research Medal.
