These 4-day lecture series cover a wide range of topics on the relationship between the brain and the mind in health and disease. Brain mechanisms of major cognitive functions will be reviewed, as well as the major neurocognitive disorders. Cognitive characteristics of several major disorders affecting cognition will also be reviewed. The number of participants will be limited to enable active audience participation.

Elkhonon Goldberg, Ph.D., ABPP, is a neuropsychologist and cognitive neuroscientist. He is a Clinical Professor in the Department of Neurology of New York University School of Medicine and a Diplomate of The American Board of Professional Psychology in Clinical Neuropsychology. Goldberg’s work contributed to our understanding of hemispheric specialization, frontal lobe functions, memory, and the general principles of functional cortical organization. He research involved mechanisms of amnesia, frontal-lobe syndromes, cognitive impairment in dementias, traumatic brain injury and Parkinson’s disease, and cognitive enhancement. Goldberg’s books The Executive Brain (2001), The Wisdom Paradox (2005), and The New Executive Brain (2009) have been translated into close to 20 languages. He coauthored (with Alvaro Fernandez) The SharpBrains Guide to Cognitive Fitness (2013) and serves as the Chief Scientific Adviser of www.sharpbrains.com. Goldberg has authored several original tests and innovative experimental paradigms and published a number of research papers in peer-reviewed journals. Goldberg is also a practicing neuropsychologist with wide-ranging clinical experience. A sought-after educator, he has taught at major universities worldwide. Goldberg is a recipient of The Copernicus Prize for his “contributions to interdisciplinary dialogue between neurosciences and neuropsychology”, and The Tempos Hominis medal “for international medical sciences education.” He is a foreign member of The Venetian Institute of Science, Literature and Arts. Elkhonon Goldberg was a student and close associate of Alexander Luria, one of the “founding fathers” of neuropsychology as a scientific discipline.
LURIA NEUROSCIENCE INSTITUTE (LNI) is dedicated to advancing and disseminating knowledge about the brain and the mind. Bridging the gap between clinicians, educators, neuroscientists, and the general public through a vigorous exchange of ideas and information is central to our mission. We promote and conduct cutting edge research through an international network of collaborations with leading universities and research centers. We foster and facilitate international and interdisciplinary collaborations and exchanges. LNI is named after the great neuropsychologist Alexander Luria.
