Thursday, May 17, 2012 | 5:36 p.m. CDT

COLUMBIA — The MU School of Health Professions is beginning a new conversation series aiming to promote discussion and interaction between the school and the Columbia community.

MU Brain Imaging Center Director Scott Frey will discuss how increased or decreased amounts of hand stimulation can affect certain areas of the brain, specifically those responsible for hand movements and sensations.

The series will present health research that can change peoples' lives in a real and practical way, said School of Health Professions strategic communications director Megan Gill.

The series, titled the Collaborative Scholarship & Discovery Conversation Series, will have its first installment from noon to 1 p.m. Friday in Room 3 of MU's Lewis Hall.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information go to the School of Health Profession's blog post.

Supervising editor is Elizabeth Brixey.
