Renowned neuroscientist Carol Barnes will present the University of Waterloo’s 2017 Hagey Lecture this week and discuss how memory and the brain change during normal aging, as well as some of the current thinking about ways to optimize mental functions throughout life.
Professor Barnes is a Regents’ Professor in the Departments of Psychology, Neurology and Neuroscience, the Evelyn F. McKnight Endowed Chair for Learning and Memory in Aging, director of the Evelyn F. McKnight Brain Institute, and director of the Division of Neural Systems, Memory & Aging at the University of Arizona in Tucson. Barnes received the 2013 Gerard Prize in Neuroscience and the 2014 American Psychological Association Award for Distinguished Scientific Contributions.
