Research Tuesdays goes virtual

June's event

Memory Restored

Memory impairment can be devastating—not just for those who experience it, but their families, friends and the businesses and groups they’re unable to contribute to.

Among those coping with depression and schizophrenia for example—around 6% and 1% of our population respectively—it’s frequently and strongly associated with reduced quality of life and increased risk of homelessness.

Adding to the bleak outlook, there are currently no effective treatments for memory impairment. But research at the University of Adelaide could be showing a way forward.

Our team is solving the mystery of how the brain stores memories; how those processes are affected by mental illness; and how they can be restored using personalised, non-invasive brain stimulation.

We invite you to join us for this fascinating presentation to hear their progress.

The presenter

Dr Nigel Rogasch is a Senior Research Fellow in the Adelaide Medical School and South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute, and heads the Brain Stimulation, Imaging and Cognition research group across the two institutions.
