Dr. Brenda Milner, a McGill neurology and neurosurgery professor and researcher, is a pioneer in the domain of neuroscience. She leads research on cognitive neuroscience of memory where sophisticated tools such as MRI and PET are used to assess the regions of the brain responsible for languages. She also studies the role of the right hippocampal region in the memory of spatial location of objects. Her expertise and her work have led her to obtain many prestigious prizes, obtain significant grants and be honoured by more than 20 different universities with an Honorary Degree. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
