"Brain imaging in health and disease," the next seminar in the IHSI Health IDEAS lecture series, will be held from 3-4 p.m. May 1, 2019, in the Beckman Institute Auditorium (reception to follow). Cary Savage, PhD, Director of the Center for Brain, Biology, and Behavior (CB3) at the University of Nebraska will describe two ongoing research programs. The first focuses on identifying brain function contributors to obesity, unhealthy eating, and sedentary lifestyle in order to better understand why healthy choices are so difficult to make consistently. The second program focuses on new collaborations with Nebraska Athletics to refine understanding of structural and functional neural biomarkers of sports-related concussion. The lecture is sponsored by IHSI, Beckman Institute, and the Center for Brain Plasticity. Learn more and register at go.illinois.edu/HealthIDEAS
