Professor Greg Stuart, Head, Eccles Institute of Neuroscience,The John Curtin School of Medical Research, ANU.

Professor Greg Stuart will deliver the 4th Annual John Curtin Lecture in Medical Research. This lecture is the first in the 2014 JCSMR Director’s ‘Health through Discovery’ Public Lecture Series. Lectures will take place on the last Monday of each month, March-November. Professor Stuart will discuss the ‘nuts and bolts’ of how the brain works, focusing on how the brain processes information from the outside world at the single cell level, as well as what goes on when we learn, and how we remember. A deeper understanding of how the brain works is critical if we are to understand and develop targeted treatments for neurological disorders such as epilepsy and dementia.
