Our researchers are driven by the desire to understand. They work to uncover new knowledge and shed light on the world's biggest challenges. From tackling Meningococcal B to finding energy solutions for the future, our discoveries make a difference to people's lives across the world.
At Research Tuesdays we share this knowledge, every month. If you're curious about the changing world, we invite you to join us.
Research Tuesdays goes virtual
The University of Adelaide is monitoring the COVID-19 situation, and continues to take action in line with the latest Federal Government announcements. As result Research Tuesdays will transition to virtual lectures through Zoom and Facebook Live.
A virtual Research Tuesdays will enable audiences to continue to experience the lectures in a safe and healthy environment. The lectures will remain on the second Tuesday of the month, with the next lecture live streamed on Tuesday 9 June 5.30-6.30pm.
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.
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.
Date: Tuesday, 9 June
