“The Social Media Brain” is the topic for November’s Neuro Night forum, scheduled at 6 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 19.
This months’ forum will include a panel of three invited speakers, including:
· Bill Lovallo, Ph.D., professor, VA Medical Center
· Dave Sherry, Ph.D., associate professor, OU College of Medicine

The panelists will discuss how social media in its various evolving forms can affect the brain and nervous system and how applications based in social media may enhance brain function. Spectators will have the opportunity to ask questions.
The forum is part of the Neuro Night series sponsored by the Oklahoma Center for Neuroscience, a consortium of neuroscientists from across the state that serves as a research center and information resource at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center. The series is aimed at improving neurological health through education and the sharing of information about research and access to care.
