The Neuro Film Series
The 2013 Neuro Film Series season will begin on Wednesday,
October 24 at 6:30 pm. We will be showing the Academy Award
winning science fiction film "Charly" (1968), which is an
adaptation of "Flowers for Algernon” by Daniel Keyes. It chronicles
the life of a patient who undergoes an experimental neurosurgical
procedure to enhance his IQ. The film explores relationships
between neurosurgery and neuropsychology, intellect and emotion,
love and loss. At the end of the film, our Neuro host, Dr. Jeffrey
Hall will discuss the film and welcome questions and
Dr. Hall is neurosurgeon dedicated to the surgical care of patients with epilepsy. He holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in Neuropsychology earned under the mentorship of Dr. Doreen Kimura who was Dr. Brenda Milner's first PhD student.
