About the Event

The Oskar Fischer Lecture Series features invited scholars working at the vanguard of new ideas on the mechanisms, diagnosis and treatment of dementing illnesses.

The December lecture, “Gamma Oscillations — Mechanisms and Function in Human Neurodegenerative Diseases,” features neuroscientist Li-Huei Tsai, Ph.D. Tsai is the director and a professor of neuroscience at the Picower Institute for Learning and Memory at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She is also a senior associate of the Broad Institute and was named an investigator of Howard Hughes Medical Institute in 1997. Most recently, Tsai co-founded the Aging Brain Initiative at MIT and became the co-director of the Alana Down Syndrome Center at MIT.

Her research is focused on explaining the pathogenic mechanisms underlying neurological disorders that impact learning and memory using multidisciplinary and network-level approaches.

After Tsai’s lecture, Michael T. Heneka, M.D., and Bruce Yankner, M.D., Ph.D., will join the discussion, followed by Q&A.
