The Distinguished Lecture Series on Brain, Learning and Memory
The Distinguished Lecture Series on Brain, Learning and Memory was founded in 1995 by James L. McGaugh, Founding Director of the CNLM. The lectures are an integral part of the CNLM's outreach mission and are intended for a lay audience. The series is widely regarded as the most successful public lecture series at UC Irvine and in Orange County.
Dr. McGaugh was the series' inaugural speaker in 1995 and has been the distinguished speaker on numerous occasions. Series speakers are world-renowned scientists who have made significant advances to brain research, particularly in the area of learning and memory. The speakers are chosen not only for the reputation of their research, but also for their ability to convey the importance and implications of that research to a lay audience.
The Public Lecture Series is supported by the Center for the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory, in partnership with the School of Biological Sciences, and Institute for Memory Impairments and Neurological Disorders. Public lectures have been held each year since 1995, and attract capacity audiences of Irvine and Orange County community members, professionals and high school and college students.
Lectures are held at the Irvine Barclay Theatre (adjacent to the UCI campus) at 4242 Campus Drive, Irvine. Parking is provided in an adjacent structure for $10.
Lectures are free of charge but registration is required and early arrival is highly recommended.
