WHY: Dr. McEwen, head of the Harold and Margaret Milliken Hatch Laboratory of Neuroendocrinology at The Rockefeller University, has done extensive research on the impact of stress on brain structure and neurochemistry. In his lecture, he will discuss the important role that the endocrine and nervous systems play in communication between the brain and the rest of the body and how common, low levels of stress over time, such as stress caused by the events of everyday life, can affect health. Dr. McEwen will also discuss the impact of stress on the immune system and regions of the brain involved in fear and cognitive function.
