Understanding the Brain: From Memory to the Anxious Mind

Monday, September 23, 2019 06:00 PM - 09:00 PM

What happens in our brains when we undergo stress? Why are some people more anxious than others? How do our brains know the difference between positive and negative emotions? These are just some of the questions Prof. Rony Paz is answering. Understanding the connection between emotions and cognitive processes such as learning, memory, and decision-making can shed light on disorders where that connection is disrupted, including autism, schizophrenia, anxiety, depression, and PTSD.
