Emeritus College: Where Learning Is For Life – November 2014

Join us for another exciting semester with new classes and topics for everyone! Here are just a few classes we are looking forward to this November at TWU!

Remember When? The Science of Memory

Explore various aspects of memory with Dr. Jyutika Mehta, Director of The Stroke Center Neurophysiology Lab at T. Boone Pickens Institute of Health Sciences and Assistant Professor of Speech/Language Pathology at TWU. Why can you vividly recall the day your father took you to your first baseball game many years ago but you can’t remember where you just put the car keys? We tend not to think about it much, but memory is the seat of consciousness. The process of how we remember, how we forget, and why we remember certain things and not others is a rich subject of scientific inquiry and a fascinating window into who we are and what makes us tick. This session will explore various aspects of memory from its role in learning to the effects of trauma and aging and look at current therapies that aim to improve our memory.

Introduction to Film Noir

Dr. John Calabrese, Professor of Film History and Art History at TWU, will explore the characteristics of this distinctive film style and genre by examining character, plot, dialog, atmosphere, lighting and other key elements. Clips of selected films will be used.

Save the date for the Holiday Social and Open House on December 9.

Join us in the main clubhouse at Robson Ranch to see the full spring lineup of classes!
