think + drink (science)

On the second Wednesday of each month, from 7 to 9 p.m., we transform the Bishop Planetarium into a forum for discussions at think + drink (science), a place where you can grab a beer or a glass of wine (or a soft drink) and learn about cutting-edge science in a relaxed, informal setting. Typically our "expert du jour" gives a short presentation on the topic of the month, and then opens the floor for questions and discussion. Drinks and bar snacks available for purchase. Feel free to bring food.

The Aging Brain v. Alzheimer’s disease with Dr. Alan B. Grindal MD. FAAN

Although “normal “aging and Alzheimer’s disease are often seen as separate independent categories of cognitive decline, it may be more accurate to view them as a continuum of change. Early symptoms of the two conditions can be identical. Furthermore, changes in the brain associated with Alzheimer’s may precede observable manifestations by more than a decade. It is, therefore, important that we differentiate the cause of change from its impact on individual functionality.

This discussion will focus on subtle diagnostic differences, methods of detection and the means of intervention we have at the present and what will be hopefully available in the future.

think + drink (science) is $3 for members, $5 for non-members.
