Minds Behind The MIND


The 2013-2014 Minds Behind the MIND lecture series resumed in November 2013.  Leading researchers and clinicians from the UC Davis MIND Institute will present current research and new treatment findings.  The presentations will give our community a better perspective on the scope of research being conducted at the MIND Institute, the outcomes of this research, and ways they may support these efforts.

Lectures will be held from 5:30 - 7 pm at the UC Davis MIND Institute. Resources and research study information focused on the evening’s topic will be available from 4:30 - 5:30 pm. There will also be an extended “ask the experts” session with the panelists after the presentation. Please note that seating is limited.

Note:  The November, 2013 Minds Behind the MIND presentation on ADHD was not recorded because of a change in format.

For more information about the series, contact Terri Contenti, MIND Institute Community Relations Officer, (916) 703-0289.
