Beyond MU: Lifelong Learning will host a webinar titled “The Science that Heals: The Neurobiology of Stress, Trauma and Resilience” on Tuesday, May 11, at noon. Register via Zoom.
A wealth of evidence indicates a strong linkage between isolation and neglect with behavioral and mental health disorders later in life. Researchers in the Kubly Mental Health Research Center within the College of Health Sciences are positioned to bring a multifaceted neuroscientific perspective to this issue. This program will examine brain mechanisms of stress responsiveness and coping, the effects of stress hormones on brain development, and neurological changes that can carry negative effects across multiple generations as well as mechanisms underlying resilience and recovery.
The webinar will be presented by:
- Dr. William E. Cullinan, dean and professor in the College of Health Sciences
- Dr. Paul Gasser, associate professor in the Department of Biomedical Sciences in the College of Health Sciences
- Dr. Marieke Gilmartin, associate professor and associate chair for research in the Department of Biomedical Sciences in the College of Health Sciences
- Dr. Robert Wheeler, associate professor in the Department of Biomedical Sciences in the College of Health Sciences
