Where do religion and science intersect? Please join us for a series of thought-provoking lectures and learning on how tradition influences memory. Experts in the field will discuss a wide variety of topics ranging from the philosophical to the biology of functional memory.

Please join us for the finale of this series as we welcome UNC Assistant Professor Jessica Cohen to discuss Network Neuroscience: How Brain Networks Underlie Learning and Memory. Dr. Cohen studies how functional brain networks interact and reconfigure when confronted with changing cognitive demands, when experiencing transformations across development, and when facing disruptions in healthy functioning due to disease.

Everyone is welcome to attend. You do not have to attend all sessions as they are standalone lectures.
