Dr. Daniel Orme, clinical associate professor of health psychology at the University of Missouri Health Sciences Center, will present “The Real Story of the Red Baron’s Demise and other Neuropsychological Cases” at 5 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 29, in Room 204 of McNutt Hall on the campus of the University of Missouri-Rolla. The lecture is free and open to all students, faculty, staff, and the general public.
Orme has published numerous articles on cognitive fitness in the military, including an account of the causes behind the death of the infamous Red Baron. Orme has been invited to UMR to enhance the learning opportunities of students in the Voyager Learning Community, which is organized by Dr. Harvest Collier, vice provost of undergraduate and graduate studies at UMR.
Voyager students in general psychology courses at UMR read The Man Who Mistook his Wife for a Hat, an account of unusual neurology cases by Dr. Oliver Sacks, and discuss these further with Drs. Mike Nelson and Will Canu of the UMR psychology department.
Orme’s presentation, which is sponsored by the UMR psychology department and the Office of Undergraduate and Graduate Studies, will extend students’ exposure to the discipline of neuropsychology.
