March 11, 2010

Most stroke patients show some degree of spontaneous recovery, though usually it’s incomplete. Recent studies provide insight into the biological mechanisms responsible for this recovery. Cramer, a leading stroke researcher, will discuss these mechanisms and explore emerging therapies to improve brain repair and reduce disability.

Cramer received a bachelor’s degree from UC Berkeley and a medical degree from the University of Southern California. He completed residencies at the UCLA Center for the Health Sciences and Massachusetts General Hospital before earning a master of medical science degree at Harvard Medical School. Cramer is co-editor of the upcoming book Brain Repair After Stroke; is an Orange County Medical Association 2010 Physician of Excellence; has published more than 100 peer-reviewed articles; and serves on numerous committees and advisory boards related to neurological disease.

UCI’s Distinguished Lecture Series on Brain, Learning & Memory, established by the Center for the Neurobiology of Learning & Memory in 1995, comprises three public talks a year that typically attract capacity audiences of community members, professionals, and high school and college students.
