12:00 - 1:30P.M.

Marc Milstein PhD earned his doctorate in biological chemistry and molecular biology from UCLA where his focus was breast cancer research. He currently performs neuroscience research at UCLA and created the popular lecture series "Science In Pop Culture" and "Your Amazing Brain" that have been given at UCLA, The Skirball Cultural Center, The California Science Center and throughout Los Angeles.

What better way to exercise your brain than to learn about your amazing brain, as well as the latest cutting edge science research. Science breakthroughs are happening at a rapid rate, but there is a disconnect between breakthroughs discovered in the lab and what is reported by the media. Dr. Milstein will discuss the latest science research in an accurate and easy to understand manner as he explains understanding stem cells, aging, the neuroscience of emotions and medical advances on the horizon and how these science discoveries have the power to directly positively impact your life while exercising your brain.
