Event description
An in-depth look at how research on Autism Spectrum Disorder and Alzheimer's disease is being done.

About this Event

This event will introduce audience members to the exciting work Dr Juliette Cheyne of Auckland University is conducting on Autism Spectrum Disorder and Alzheimer’s disease. Dr Cheyne’s research focuses on recording brain activity in rodents. She looks specifically at how brain cells interact with one another which give researchers a better understanding of how these two conditions progress within humans.

Directions and parking

Forum North is located on Rust Avenue in the middle of the Whangarei CBD next to the Old Library.

There are two public entrances into Forum North. The front access is via Rust Avenue, where the Whangarei District Council Customer Service Centre is located and near the Library and the other off the Water Street carpark.

More information

The Neurological Foundation would like to invite all audience members to stay after the presentation is given for a mix and mingle. We will be providing beverages and finger foods starting at 7.30 pm including coffee, tea, orange juice and water.

Please take this opportunity to chat with fellow research and science enthusiasts, and Foundation supporters in your area. The speaker will be available from this hour to answer any additional questions you might have as well.
