How the embryonic nervous system is assembled and the adult brain is modified depend on both genes and the environment - experiences such as learning and memory that can radically change the brain's wiring or neuronal function. Professor Spitzer will discuss his studies that have provided a new look at how neuronal wiring is assembled in the developing brain and the impact that environment has on continually shaping the brain later in life.

This show identifies and promotes the use of new technologies that facilitate and expand treatment and recovery services. These new technologies include social media, interactive text messaging platforms, and smart phone applications. These technologies are enabling new models of behavioral health care both within and outside of formal or traditional systems of care. The benefits of using these technologies is highlighted, such as their ability to build virtual recovery communities, facilitate peer support, and enable a person in recovery to participate anonymously.

What was once science fiction is well on its way to becoming a reality. A team of researchers from different technological fields are working on a European Union project called "Beaming." Not quite the same as it was on Star Trek, the aim of this project is be able to use robots or avatars to have humans be in two places at once - so to speak. Look at how this can be done by gathering huge masses of image data and using a special display headset. The scientists say that if "Virtual Beaming" becomes possible, it could change society.

Mouse model studies in Alcino Sila's laboratory have uncovered mechanisms and treatments for learning and memory disorders, including Neurofibromatosis type I, Tuberous Sclerosis, Noonan Syndrome and DISC1. These and other related findings illustrate how insights into the biology of molecular and cellular processes in the brain are changing the way we understand and envision treating learning and memory disorders. They suggest that adult treatments could one day help the millions of people affected with neurodevelopmental and other learning and memory disorders. Alcino J. Silva, an internationally respected professor of Neurobiology, Psychiatry and Psychology, and director of the Integrative Center for Learning and Memory at UCLA.
