OHSU BRAIN AWARENESS LECTURE SEASON 2018

Nourishing Your Neurons
How you fuel your brain creates pivotal changes

What are the ingredients we need to maximize our brains’ potential? This year, our lecture series explores the critical influence nourishing the brain has on our daily abilities, from academic performance to good decision-making. Join us as top researchers in neuroscience discuss the brain’s complex biology and the profound impact choosing the right – or wrong – fuels has on behavior.

All lectures start at 7pm at the Newmark Theatre, inside Antoinette Hatfield Hall at 1111 S.W. Broadway Ave, Portland.
