Professor of behavior medicine at Free University of Brussels, Belgium

The role of hemispheric lateralization in health & disease.

Abstract:
Hemispheric lateralization is the tendency to activate one side of the brain more than the other or to utilize mainly one side for certain functions. Numerous studies has found that left hemispheric lateralization is related to immune enhancement while right hemispheric lateralization is related to immune suppression. Yori Gidron, Professor of behavior medicine, Free University of Brussels, Belgium, will in the present talk review laterality-immunity research in humans and argue that there is a need for using gold-standard measures of brain activity, i.e., MRI or MEG.

All interested are very welcome to attend the guest talk in the DNC Auditorium.
