New conference brings together neuroscience and exercise science
Hosted by Colleges of Psychology and Health Care Sciences
A new conference created by faculty members from NSU’s College of Psychology and Dr. Pallavi Patel College of Health Care Sciences will focus on the intersection between neuroscience and exercise/sport science.
The inaugural Society for NeuroSports Conference will take place Nov. 15-16 at The Wyndham Deerfield Beach Resort, 2096 NE 2nd Street, Deerfield Beach, FL, 33441.
“There’s no academic society for people to present their research,” said Professor Jaime Tartar, Ph.D., of the College of Psychology. “We hope to have people from all these fields who are doing similar work come together and share ideas.”
Associate Professor Jose Antonio, Ph.D., of the College of Health Care Sciences, said he is excited about the collaboration between the two fields.
“We're hoping for those who attend that they’ll learn information in terms of how the brain is impacted or affected by exercise, and also how it might be negatively impacted by participation in contact sports,” he said.
