Please join us in welcoming Amanda Carey Ph.D. as our guest seminar speaker. Refreshments will be served at 4 p.m. Free and open to the public.

Her research: Dr. Amanda Carey’s research program studies the behavioral and neurochemical effects of aging and how nutritional intervention may allay some of the brain alterations associated with aging. Her work investigates the mechanisms of aging and how disease-related proteins result in neurodegeneration and behavioral alterations. Dr. Carey has demonstrated that nutritional therapies can directly alter the cellular function to prevent the damage associated with “normal” aging and revealed how this may support the treatment of disease states such as dementia. Her current work explores how "good" fats (like those from walnuts) and "bad" fats (like those found in fried foods) can affect the health and wellness of the brain.
