CUC Breakfast Meeting Wednesday, April 25, 2015
Join us Wednesday, April 25th for another informative Citizens University Committee Breakfast at UCR. This month’s topic is “Out of the Lab: Brain & Eye Fitness Games”.
This month’s speaker, Professor Victor Zordan, will be presenting research regarding new methods of improving memory and vision through an app on your smartphone. Professor Zordan will be standing in for Dr. Aaron Seitz, UCR Professor of Psychology and is a member of Dr. Seitz’s team working to develop a series of “Brain Games” aimed at improving overall brain fitness.
Working with the newly founded UCR Brain Game Center for Mental Fitness and Well Being researchers have the mission to research, test, and disseminate game software instrumented with expert knowledge to optimize human brain processes with an aim to make scientifically principled brain games that translate to performance in real-life activities.
Also this month the CUC will be celebrating National Volunteer Month. We will be honoring top UCR organizations that are giving back and volunteering to make our community a better place.
