Resilience, empathy, and plasticity are important parts of the human experience, but how do these traits actually emerge biologically? Renowned scientists, Dr. Dorothy Kozlowski, Dr. Peggy Mason, and Dr. Janice Urban, will come together to discuss their groundbreaking work in neuroscience. Discussions will focus on the biology of empathy and helping behavior in rats, the incredible ability of the brain to repair itself following traumatic injury, and how the brain develops a stress response and resilience.

Join us at DePaul University for a discussion of what role the brain has in resilience, empathy, and plasticity. A panel discussion with the scientists reflecting on how these traits have assisted them in their careers as women in neuroscience will follow.
