In March 2012 The Neuroscience, Behavior and Health Spire held a day-long symposium focused on exercise and the brain. Dr. Rodney Dishman, Dr. Art Kramer, Dr. Monika Fleshner and Dr. Henriette van Praag gave talks on this topic. In September 2012 NBH welcomed Dr. Kramer back to give a follow-up lecture. Please follow the links below for further details about each event. Both events were sponsored by The Macmillan Family Trust.
