📺 Extended Q&A: Exercise in Brain Health and Disease 

This resource has been adapted from the webinar, Exercise in Brain Health and Disease, which took place on April 28, 2022. In the full recording on Neuronline, Henriette van Praag, Áine Kelly, David Jiménez-Pavón, and Swathi Gujral discussed different mechanisms by which exercise positively influences brain health and function across the lifespan, from modulation of inflammation to regulation of adult neurogenesis. 

 

📺 How to Advocate for Mental Health Research 

In this panel, NMH Director Joshua Gordon, Maria Oquendo, Pat Kobor, Patricia Conrod, and Lori McMahon address current foundational research on mental health issues, advocacy efforts to increase public awareness and funding, and how the COVID-19 pandemic heightened the importance of addressing mental health across all ages. 

 

📄 How Models Clarify Our Understanding of the Brain 

Stephen Grossberg illustrates the importance of neural models by taking a close look at the stability-plasticity dilemma, and how neural models can help answer questions such as, how do we learn things quickly but remember them for a long time, or why does a fast-learning rate not force a fast-forgetting rate?  

 

📄 How Science Communication Can Improve Your Career 

Effective science communication refers to the ability to discuss science in terms that your audience will understand. Read how scientists can communicate inwardly to colleagues, or outwardly with important stakeholders such as the public, government, industry, educators, or even scientists outside of one’s field.
