Bill Klemm, a Professor of Neuroscience, is a
noted speaker with over 40 years of university teaching and research experience at Texas
A&M, Iowa State, and Notre Dame univerfsities. Additionally, he has given
numerous memory improvement talks to lay audiences in clubs, in schools, and
regional and national meetings. These talks have also been given at numerous
state and national meetings of school teachers to show them how
they can help their students to remember school lessons. Many of these
presentations draw standing-room only attendance. Some teachers have said that Billís
talk was the best at the whole meeting.
Bill goes to
schools to conduct all-day workshops on memory for teachers. He has also
given talks in public schools about science to students in grades ranging
from the second grade to the eighth grade. He develops science curriculum
for middle school children (see http://peer.tamu.edu).
speaking experience includes completion of the Dale Carnegie course in
leadership and public speaking. Bill has been President of about a
half-dozen organizations and has chaired numerous committees, where he got
valuable experience from presiding over meetings. During an eight-year
period as a Colonel in the Air Force Reserves, he gave frequent briefings to
staff and commanders at the Headquarters of Air Force Human Systems
Division. He has also given briefings to the headquarters of the National
Security Agency. For over 40 years, he has given on the order of five or six talks each year about his research to colleagues at local, state,
national, and international meetings.
Bill has been
interviewed many times on radio and television, most recently in regard to
his book on memory. Bill has even made political campaign speeches during
his run for the School Board in his city.
He is a widely cited neuroscientist who has published
over 450 research papers, 45 book chapters, and 13 books on a broad range of
topics, including distance education technology, collaborative learning, radiation effects on the
nervous system, brainstem physiology, immobility responses ("animal
hypnosis"), behavioral pharmacology, animal electroencephalography,
pheromones in animal reproduction, mechanisms of alcohol and narcotic
action, memory, and human cognition. He has served on the official Editorial
Boards of 11 scholarly journals (six scientific, 5 educational).
His published memory
research ranges from white rats to college sophomores. A recent book is on
applying scientific discoveries to practical applications for improving
memory. He gives presentations around the country helping
people to improve their memory. He publishes a
blog that updates the book with the latest memory research. He also gives
memory seminars and workshops about memory to students, teachers, and
the elderly. His most recent book is an e-book textbook,
Core Ideas In Neuroscience.
