The CTSI Seminar Series for Spring 2014 continues on Tuesday, March 11th with a presentation by Brad Mahon, PhD. Dr. Mahon will be presenting on a research collaboration with G. Edward Vates, MD, PhD in a seminar entitled “Using MRI to predict visual recovery after tumor resection.” Dr. Mahon works in the Concepts, Actions and Objects (CAO) Lab and his research addresses the processes involved in categorization and recognition of the visual input, the engagement of motor knowledge necessary to manipulate objects, and the dynamics of information retrieval within the speech production system.
The theme of the Spring 2014 series is “Crossing Elmwood: River Campus-Medical Center Research Collaborations” and will showcase ongoing research collaborations between the University research community and the Medical Center. The series also aims to stimulate new research teams and areas of investigation capitalizing on the existing strength of faculty and programs. The Organizing Committee for the series includes Robert Holloway, MD, MPH, Peter Lennie, PhD, Rob Clark, PhD, Stephen Dewhurst, PhD, Karl Kieburtz, MD, MPH, David Williams, PhD, Richard Waugh, PhD, and Joanna Olmsted, PhD.
