Brushing, Flossing, Inflammation, Memory and Cognitive Decline: How are they Connected?

This 3-hr program presents advances in identifying who develops memory loss and advances in protecting the brain decades before the onset of age-related cognitive decline. Participants completing this program will be able to identify disorders associated with short-term, long-term, and habit memory, and they will be provided with evidenced-based strategies for protecting our brains from memory impairments, Alzheimer’s disease, and other dementias. Included in the session will be the impact on memory of oral hygiene, inflammation (gut and gums), and diet. Additionally, participants will learn techniques for improving their memory and reducing their stress. Dr. Zola is a sought-after speaker, artfully combining his natural sense of humor and social acumen, his working knowledge of brain science, and his favorite hobby, sleight-of-hand magic. This will be fun!

Stuart Zola, Ph.D.

Stuart Zola has had a continuing and extremely productive career and successful research program investigating the neurological foundation of memory and memory impairment. His work has been at the cutting edge of efforts to understand how memory is organized in the brain, and he has made increasingly important contributions to understanding memory functions. His work on animal models of human amnesia, led to the identification of a neural system in the medial temporal lobe of the brain that is critical for memory function, and he was a pioneer in support of the development of a transgenic animal model of Huntington’s Disease in nonhuman primates.

Dr. Zola is also internationally known and respected for his many roles in leadership, including Director of the Graduate Neuroscience Program at the University of California, San Diego, Director of the Yerkes National Primate Research Center at Emory University, Co-Director of the Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center at Emory, Senior Research Career Scientist and Deputy Associate Chief of Staff for Research at the Atlanta VA Medical Center, and most recently as the Interim Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs at Emory University. Additionally, Dr. Zola co-founded NeuroTrack Technologies, Inc., a company started at Emory University and now located in Redwood City, CA., focused on digital phenotyping for early detection of cognitive decline associated with Alzheimer’s disease, and he is the President and CEO of Quiet Developments, LLC, a leadership advisory company.

Most recently, he co-founded a new startup, MapHabit.com, focused on assisting individuals who are diagnosed with dementia to effectively manage their activities of daily living. He is a sought-after speaker and Master of Ceremonies, artfully combining his natural sense of humor and social acumen, his working knowledge of science, and his favorite hobby, sleight-of-hand magic.
