DZNE Music & Brain with Prof. Dr. Thomas Wolbers

January 22, 2018 - January 22, 2018


The DZNE cordially invites you to the 43th installment of our Music & Brain series on Monday, 22th January 2018 at 6:00 pm at the LVR-LandesMuseum Bonn, Colmantstraße 14 - 16, in 53115 Bonn.

In his talk “Maps in the brain” Prof. Dr. Thomas Wolbers will present the latest n- dings on the sense of direction, a key cognitive ability that often deteriorates in old age and in dementia patients. How does the brain enable us to navigate our complex environments, how do people with a good sense of direction differ from those with a bad sense of direction, and how does this ability change in old age?

Since 2012, Prof. Dr. Wolbers has been heading the “Aging and Cognition” research group at the DZNE Magdeburg. His research program aims at understanding which alterations in the brain lead to memory decline in old age and what can be done to prevent it.

Following the presentation will be a recital featuring works by Mozart, Schubert and Liszt et al. for soprano, piano and clarinet.
