The lecture series, “The Brain,” continues with its second presentation “Anxiety, Stress, Trauma and the Brain — Science and Strategies” at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Abe and Annie Seibel Foundation Wing at Galveston College, 4015 Ave. Q in Galveston.
Neuroscientist Dr. Janet Zadina will be present the lecture.
Zadina was a high school and community college teacher when her desire to better understand learners’ struggles developed into an interest in neuroimaging studies of dyslexia. Pursuing that interest, Zadina became a neuroscientist, conducting MRI research into dyslexia in the Department of Neurology at Tulane University School of Medicine.
Zadina is an internationally renowned speaker, consultant and author. She is the author of reading and learning textbooks as well as professional development books for teachers. She is co-founder of the Butterfly Project, designed to help teachers who have experienced natural disasters.
