Michael Scullin
The Sleeping Brain

Everyone "knows" you're supposed to sleep 8 hours/night, but why is that? I will discuss what the brain does while asleep, why sleep loss impairs your memory and mood, and how recent scientific advances show that sleeping better helps to protect against risk for Alzheimer's disease.

Michael Scullin, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor of Psychology & Neuroscience at Baylor University.

Bryan Shaw
Low Cost (but High Tech) Tools to Help Blind Children See and Learn

Infants and small children with visual impairments will typically face two key challenges in life: 1) getting their ocular condition diagnosed quickly (to minimize vision loss), and 2) getting on the right developmental track for a first-rate education. I will discuss a few simple tools we have developed to help children win these battles.

Bryan Shaw Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor of Chemistry & Biochemistry at Baylor University.
