Neuroplasticity and Healing
A Scientific Symposium with His Holiness The Dalai Lama
As part of Birmingham's Human Rights Week, the University of Alabama at Birmingham is proud to announce His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama’s participation in a scientific symposium/dialogue titled "Neuroplasticity and Healing". His Holiness The Dalai Lama will comment on and discuss the research and treatments developed by Dr. Edward Taub of UAB and Dr. Michael Merzenich of the University of California, San Francisco, which are based on the plasticity of the brain in adults. This event will be moderated by Dr. Norman Doidge, author of the best-selling popular account of neuroplasticity, The Brain That Changes Itself. Dr. Thupten Jinpa, authority on Buddhism and Tibetan language and culture, will serve as interpreter for His Holiness.
While the event is by invitation only, UAB will be live streaming and archiving the symposium via YouTube beginning October 25 at 9:00 a.m. Central.
