Description: Register to attend the 2nd Annual Drs. Peter and Marlene MacLeish Endowed Lectureship lectures Wednesday, March 27 ¿ Thursday, March 28, 2019. This year's lecturer is Dr. Emery Brown, Ph.D., M.D., the Edward Hood Taplin Professor of Medical Engineering and Computational Neuroscience at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the Warren M. Zapol Professor of Anesthesia at Harvard Medical School and a practicing anesthesiologist at Massachusetts General Hospital. Dr. Brown's presentation is titled, "Deciphering the Dynamics of the Unconscious Brain Under General Anesthesia."
Atlanta community members are invited to hear Dr. Brown discuss Propofol, the most widely used anesthetic drug, which was implicated in the death of Michael Jackson. Dr. Brown will provide an overview of the five behavioral states that can occur under general anesthesia: unconsciousness, loss of memory, pain sensation and mobility, as well as stability of physiological variables (e.g. heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature and stress response). Registration is free of charge. For more information, visit: http://bit.ly/macleishlecture2019
This scientific session will bring together some of the greatest minds in neuroscience and anesthesiology highlighting human studies of general anesthesia. Emery N. Brown, M.D., Ph.D. will discuss measurements of brain activity, and provide a detailed characterization of the changes in brain activity that occur during loss and recovery of consciousness due to various anesthetic drugs. Registration is free of charge. For more information, visit: http://bit.ly/macleishlecture2019
