      LSU MIND Brain Science Speaker: Isabel Gauthier

      Please join us Monday, November 11 at 3:00 p.m. in the Digital Media Center Theater (340 E Parker Blvd) for a talk and discussion with Vanderbilt professor and neuroscientist Dr. Isabel Gauthier.

      Dr. Gauthier is a leading researcher in how people learn to categorize, recognize and represent faces and objects. Much of her research focuses on what happens in the brain when people become experts in certain categories such as faces, cars, birds, musical notations, etc. Her work also suggests that most humans become “face experts” at an early age and that expertise may lead to the development of special face-specific processing modules in the brain. Dr. Gauthier has received numerous awards and honors for her work, including being named the Southeastern Conference (SEC) Professor of the Year in 2015.

      Admission is free and open to the public. Please use this page to register your attendance.
