    The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum will host Memory, Trauma and Resilience, an exciting evening with renowned scientists discussing breakthroughs in our understanding of memory and the brain, including post-traumatic stress and other challenges faced by veterans and those living in war and disaster zones on Wednesday, November 18, at 7:30pm at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, located at Pier 86 (46th Street and 12th Avenue) in Manhattan.

    Four decades after the Vietnam War, 11 percent of veterans still suffer from post-traumatic stress, and new research suggests that for some, this condition is unlikely to go away. The panel will explore what we know now about the brain and how traumatic memories are formed and processed over time, as well as how new research can pave the way to new treatment options.

    Join Joseph LeDoux, Henry and Lucy Moses Professor of Science and director of the Emotional Brain Institute at New York University (NYU); George Bonanno, professor of clinical psychology and director of the Loss, Trauma, and Emotion Lab, Teachers College, Columbia University; Charles Marmar, chair of the Department of Psychiatry at NYU Langone Medical Center and director of the Steven and Alexandra Cohen Veterans Center and Military Family Clinic; and Daniela Schiller, assistant professor of psychiatry and neuroscience and head of the Schiller Laboratory of Affective Neuroscience at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai; along with moderator Kim Ghattas, BBC journalist and author who grew up on the front lines of Lebanon’s civil war, for this one-time-only event.

    The event is $20 for the general public and $10 for Intrepid Museum members. Tickets are on sale at www.intrepidmuseum.org. Space is limited.
