* Lora Becker to speak at Scholars for Syria Lecture

The topic of the University of Evansville Scholars for Syria Lecture planned for Thursday, March 23, will be “Neural Development in a War Zone.” Lora Becker, UE associate professor of psychology and neuroscience and director of Neuroscience Program and Neuromarketing Research Center, will be the speaker. The event, which is free and open to the public, begins at 6:00 p.m. in Room 162 (Harkness Hall), Schroeder School of Business Building. The lecture will be followed by a panel discussion with UE Syrian students and discussion with the audience.

During her lecture Becker will discuss how our environment influences developmental processes as much as our genetic makeup.

“These powerful forces interact to result in a spectrum of emotional and cognitive human traits,” explained Becker. “However, extreme environments such as war zones, result in devastating effects on neurodevelopment that can be passed to future generations. We will examine neurodevelopmental consequences of trauma on the individual's neuroanatomical wiring, emotional responses and reasoning skills. Furthermore, we will examine what these changes mean for the future of Syria's inhabitants.”

The psychological trauma associated with this crisis, said Becker, is far-reaching and carries with it implications of domestic violence, indoctrination, and lifelong disease.

Other lectures in this series, which is sponsored by Scholars for Syria, include:

Wes Milner, executive director of international programs at UE - “The Emerging Political Dynamics of the Syrian Crisis”
