The Association is pleased to announce that Professor Ian Robertson has agreed to give a lecture to members of the Association. The lecture is entitled ‘The Benefits of Stress and other Surprising Tales of Ageing” and will take place on Thursday 28th April at 11am in the Botany Lecture Theatre.
The lecture will immediately precede the Association’s Annual General Meeting which will be held at 12 noon, also in the Botany Lecture Theatre.
Ian Robertson took up the Chair in of Psychology at Trinity College Dublin having been a Fellow at Hughes Hall, Cambridge. He has visiting professorships at UCL and was a Visiting Professor at Columbia University New York. He was the founding director of Trinity College Institute of Neuroscience and is Co-Director of the Global Brain Health Institute (www.gbhi.org).
His research on the brain’s attention systems has led to new ways of measuring how humans pay – or fail to pay – attention. He has also developed new therapeutic methods which have improved cognitive function in people with attention difficulties and he has applied these studies in recent years to the challenges of cognitive ageing and in the search for methods to delay dementia.
