Event Details

The Luria Neuroscience Institute is pleased to introduce webinars about the brain and the mind. The programs are intended primarily for professionals concerned with mental health and with brain and brain disorders, but they are also open to the members of the general public.

Dr. Elkhonon GoldbergThe webinars will feature Elkhonon Goldberg, Ph.D., ABPP., a clinical neuropsychologist and cognitive neuroscientist, Clinical Professor in the Department of Neurology, NYU School of Medicine and Diplomate of The American Board of Professional Psychology in Clinical Neuropsychology. His critically acclaimed and bestselling books have been published in 21 languages.


Each webinar takes 3 hours and 3 CE Credits will be awarded. The fee for each webinar is $145. There is a separate $15 processing fee charged by CE credit sponsor R. Cassidy Seminars.




Executive Functions and the Frontal Lobes

Date and time:
May 14, 2020 (Thursday), from 12pm to 3:15pm Eastern Time (11am – 2:15pm Central Time, 9am – 12:15pm Pacific Time)
May 16, 2020 (Saturday), from 2pm to 5:15pm Eastern Time (1pm – 4:15pm Central Time, 11am – 2:15pm Pacific Time)

Executive functions represent the highest level of cognitive control and involve goal formation, planning, mental flexibility, impulse control, working memory. Executive functions are mediated by the prefrontal cortex and related structures. In this webinar we will examine their cognitive composition, neural mechanisms, changes throughout the lifespan, and gender differences. We will also examine how executive functions become impaired in a wide range of neurological, neuropsychiatric, neurodevelopmental, and neurogeriatric disorders.

Agenda:

  • Executive functions and frontal-lobe functions: are they the same?
  • Components of executive functions (planning, impulse control, working memory, and others).
  • Novel approaches to understanding the frontal-lobe functions.
  • Frontal lobes and large-scale networks (Central Executive, Default Mode, and others).
  • Executive functions and laterality.
  • Executive functions and sex differences.
  • Regulation of emotions: frontal lobes and amygdala.
  • Executive functions and intelligence.
  • Executive functions in development and aging.


Executive Dysfunction in Brain Disorders

Date and time:
May 21, 2020 (Thursday), from 12pm to 3:15pm Eastern Time (11am – 2:15pm Central Time, 9am – 12:15pm Pacific Time)
May 23, 2020 (Saturday), from 2pm to 5:15pm Eastern Time (1pm – 4:15pm Central Time, 11am – 2:15pm Pacific Time)

Executive functions are the most fragile of all cognitive functions. They are affected in a wide range of neurological, psychiatric, neurodevelopmental, and neurogeriatric disorders. In this webinar we will examine how executive functions are affected in various dementias (including Alzheimer’s disease, Lewy body dementia, and Frontotemporal dementia); traumatic brain injury, cerebrovascular disease, neuropsychiatric disorders (including schizophrenia and affective disorders), infectious encephalopathies, seizure disorders, and other clinical conditions.

Agenda:

  • Executive dysfunction in dementias (Alzheimer’s disease, Lewy body dementia, Fronto-temporal dementia).
  • Executive dysfunction in traumatic brain injury (reticulo-frontal disconnection syndrome).
  • Executive dysfunction in cerebrovascular disorders (CVA, aneurysms).
  • Executive dysfunction in neurodevelopmental disorders (ADHD, Tourette’s Syndrome).
  • Executive dysfunction in neuropsychiatric disorders (schizophrenia, affective disorders).
    Executive dysfunction in movement disorders (Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease).
  • Executive dysfunction in infectious encephalopathies.
  • Executive dysfunction and seizure disorders.
  • Executive dysfunction and laterality.


Dementias

Date and time:
May 28, 2020 (Thursday), from 12pm to 3:15pm Eastern Time (11am – 2:15pm Central Time, 9am – 12:15pm Pacific Time)
May 30, 2020 (Saturday), from 2pm to 5:15pm Eastern Time (1pm – 4:15pm Central Time, 11am – 2:15pm Pacific Time)

Dementias are among the most prevalent neurocognitive disorders presenting a unique set of clinical and societal challenges. In this webinar we will review several major types of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease, Lewy body dementia and its relationship to Parkinson’s disease, frontotemporal dementia, vascular dementia, and others. For each of these disorders we will discuss the underlying neurobiology, epidemiology, natural history, diagnosis, and cognitive characteristics. We will also discuss cognitive aging, as well as both protective and risk factors associated with it.

Agenda:

  • Epidemiology and demographics of dementias.
  • Alzheimer’s disease: neurobiology, epidemiology, natural history, neurocognitive characteristics, and diagnosis. Lewy body dementia and Parkinson’s disease: neurobiology, epidemiology, natural history, neurocognitive characteristics, and diagnosis.
  • Fronto-temporal dementia: neurobiology, epidemiology, natural history, neurocognitive characteristics, and diagnosis. Vascular dementia: neurobiology, epidemiology, natural history, neurocognitive characteristics, and diagnosis.
  • Korsakoff’s syndrome: neurobiology, epidemiology, natural history, neurocognitive characteristics, and diagnosis. Mixed dementias: neurobiology, epidemiology, natural history, neurocognitive characteristics, and diagnosis.
  • Mild Cognitive Impairment and its relationship to dementias. Diagnosis, differential diagnosis, and misdiagnosis.
  • Memory impairment in dementias and the fallacy of old diagnostic criteria. Executive impairment in dementias: still underrecognized.
  • Arousal impairment in dementias. Changes in the epidemiology of dementias and possible causes behind them. Cognitive aging: its characteristics, protective factors, and risk factors. Cognitive enhancement and surrounding controversies.

About the Instructor

The series of mental health courses and workshops are provided by Elkhonon Goldberg, Ph.D., ABPP (wikipedia) with the participation of additional select faculty. Elkhonon Goldberg is a clinical neuropsychologist and a cognitive neuroscientist with more than 30 years of experience. Goldberg’s clinical practice spans the whole range of neuropsychological disorders, including traumatic brain injury, dementias, neurodevelopmental disorders, and forensic neuropsychology. Goldberg research includes cortical organization, hemispheric specialization, frontal lobes, memory, traumatic brain injury, dementias, schizophrenia, and other topics. Goldberg has authored several influential books and published a number of research papers in peer-reviewed journals. Goldberg is also a sought-after educator who lectures worldwide. He was a Visiting Professor at Hebrew University of Jerusalem, University of Sydney and has taught at other major universities worldwide. He has mentored a number of students and post-doctoral trainees, many of whom have become prominent neuropsychologists and neuroscientists in their own right. Elkhonon Goldberg 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. He 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. His books The Executive Brain (2001), The Wisdom Paradox (2005), and The New Executive Brain (2009) have been translated into close to 20 languages. He co-authored (with Alvaro Fernandez) The SharpBrains Guide to Cognitive Fitness and is the Chief Scientific Adviser of www.sharpbrains.com Elkhonon Goldberg was a student and close associate of Alexander Luria, one of the “founding fathers” of neuropsychology as a scientific discipline.
