Art and Alzheimer's

Wednesday, October 23, 2019
6:30 PM to 8:30 PM EST

Art and the study of Alzheimer's, on first glance, may not have much in common. But as we examine their theoretical framework, the evolving techniques, and their schools of thought - we begin to make connections and  how each offer a window into the inner workings of creative expression  and neurodegenerative disease.

Join the McGill Society of Montreal and The Neuro (Montreal Neurological Institute) for a fascinating evening on how researchers are bridging the gap between Art and Alzheimer's. Professor Alan C. Evans, world-renowned scientist at The Neuro, will present an overview of how brain imaging has advanced dementia research and Dr. AmanPreet Badhwar, BSc'00, MSc'07, and PhD'13, neuroscientist and artist, will discuss how art provides a unique perspective into the better understanding of brain function.

This insightful event for McGill alumni, parents and friends will be followed by a reception with light refreshments and live music. An exhibition of neuroscience-inspired artworks by several artists, including Dr. Badhwar, will take place in The Neuro's new Healing Garden.
