          About This Event

          Summary

          Brandy R. Matthews, M.D., assistant professor of clinical neurology, will be among the presenters at "Weekend U: Competing for your Attention," a continuing education conference that aims to challenge the way participants think about competition.

          Dr. Matthews' presentation, "Brains Behaving Badly: When Human Attention Systems Fail," will take place from 8:40 to 9:10 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 16, at NCAA Headquarters, and focus on diseases that cause specific areas of the brain to malfunction offer a unique opportunity to study the network of attention that is critically important to human social behavior.

          The session, which requires no prior knowledge of neuroanatomy and neurochemistry, will also use patient videos to demonstrate interesting behaviors, such as perseveration and prosopagnosia, which arise in the context of neurodegenerative brain diseases like Alzheimer Disease and Frontotemporal Dementia.

          Other speakers at this conference will include IUPUI faculty and local experts who will explore the many ways people and things vie for your attention. The keynote speaker will be Karen F. Crotchfelt, president and publisher of "The Indianapolis Star." Participants may also select three additional breakout sessions.

          The complete event is from 8 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. To view a complete schedule, visit the Weekend U website.

          Inspired by Indiana Humanities two-year program, Spirit of Competition, Weekend U is presented by the IU Alumni Association. Registration is $25 for IU or Purdue Alumni Association members and current students or $25 for IUPUI and IU alumni, faculty and staff. General admission is $45. Cost includes a continental breakfast and lunch.
