The 20th UC Irvine Distinguished Lecture Series on Brain, Learning and Memory

Tuesday, May 13, 2014 • 7:30 p.m.

Irvine Barclay Theatre

Epigenetics: The Making and Unmaking of Powerful Memories

Speaker: Marcelo Wood, Ph.D., Associate Professor and Chair, Department of Neurobiology and Behavior

How are long-lasting memories made? How are unwanted memories extinguished? Why might you not remember this lecture? Where is the information from our experiences, environment, and even what we eat encoded? What does packaging 6 feet of DNA into a cell have to do with intellectual disability disorders? New understanding from research in epigenetics sheds light on these questions and more.

The Irvine Barclay Theatre is located at 4242 Campus Drive in Irvine.

Lectures are free to the public, however, donations are greatly appreciated. No tickets or reservations needed.
