Thursday, May 16, 7:45 pm
The Lady and Her Monsters by Roseanne Motillo brings to life the fascinating times, startling science, and real-life horrors behind Mary Shelley’s gothic masterpiece, Frankenstein. Montillo recounts how—at the intersection of the Romantic Age and the Industrial Revolution—Shelley’s Victor Frankenstein was inspired by actual scientists of the period: curious and daring iconoclasts who were obsessed with the inner workings of the human body and how it might be reanimated after death.
“Successful Aging, Mild Cognitive Impairment, & Alzheimer’s Disease: Cognitive & Neural Changes” Presented by MIT Professor Suzanne Corkin
Tuesday, May 21, 7:45 pm
One of our biggest fears as we grow older is that we will get Alzheimer disease or some other kind of dementia. Research conducted during the last fifteen years and continuing today, strongly indicates that we can protect ourselves from cognitive decline by engaging in habitual physical and mental activity and eating healthy foods. Suzanne Corkin will tell us more about the changes that occur in our brain and cognitive functions with advanced age and offers ideas about how to keep aging-related diseases at bay. Corkin is Professor of Neuroscience, Emeritus, in the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at MIT. Her research interests include the biological bases of discrete memory processes, cognitive and neural characteristics of healthy aging, and natural history and pathophysiology of degenerative disorders.
