The Mind Research Network (MRN) presents a lecture by Alan Richardson-Klavehn titled, "Prestimulus neural oscillations and their hemodynamic correlates elucidate the cognitive and neural processes of memory formation." The lecture will be held Thursday, Aug. 5 at 11:45 a.m. in the MRN large conference room. A light lunch will be served.

Richardson-Klavehn, a professor of neurology at the Otto von Guericke University of Magdeburg, Germany, will speak on his research on the basis of memory formation (encoding) in healthy human research participants using both electrophysiological (MEG) and hemodynamic (fMRI) measurements.

MRN, located at the Uni­ver­sity of New Mex­ico, is an inde­pen­dent non-profit orga­ni­za­tion ded­i­cated to advanc­ing the diag­no­sis and treat­ment of men­tal ill­ness and other brain dis­or­ders. 

MRN is an inter­dis­ci­pli­nary asso­ci­a­tion of sci­en­tists who col­lab­o­rate with researchers at uni­ver­si­ties, national lab­o­ra­to­ries and research cen­ters around the world.  The orga­ni­za­tion is focused on imag­ing and genet­ics tech­nol­ogy and its emer­gence as an inte­gral ele­ment of neu­ro­science investigation.
