Klemm Selected as Sigma Xi Distinguished Lecturer

COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS -Dr. William Klemm, professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM), was recently selected to be a Sigma Xi Distinguished Lecturer. From July 1, 2012 through June 30, 2014, he will be invited to give presentations at Sigma Xi chapters around the nation covering three different topics: Atoms of Mind: The "Ghost in Machine" Materializes, What Teachers Can Do To Improve Student Learning and Memory, and Better Grades, Less Effort, all featured in his most recent books.

 Sigma Xi, the Scientific Research Society, is an honor society for research scientists and engineers and is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year. With more than 500 chapters in North America and around the world, Sigma Xi is a chapter-based society that makes an impact locally and globally. This highly coveted role as a distinguished lecturer is awarded to scholars who have made an impact in the world of science.

 Klemm, a DVM graduate of Auburn and a PhD graduate of Notre Dame, has taught veterinarians and scientists for almost fifty years. His teaching also reaches a wider audience through his 16 books that cover several different topics, including: Blame Game. How to Win It, Core Ideas on Neurosciences, and Thank You Brain For All You Remember, What You Forgot Was My Fault, and his latest book, the capstone of his career, entitled Atoms of Mind. Also known as the "Memory Medic," Klemm is a contributor to the Eagle and Psychology Today. He also helps online audiences understand the concepts of the brain with his popular blog, Improve your Learning and Memory at

 "I have several hopes for these presentations and I am grateful for the opportunity to present them in specialized forums at universities around the nation," explains Klemm. "I want to persuade researchers to investigate new avenues focusing on the human consciousness through my theories and ways to test the human conscious mind. I also plan to give new insight to students and professors by teaching the students how to become better learners and by giving professors new options to teaching that can make learning easier to remember."

 Aside from teaching, writing, and performing research; Klemm is a retired Colonel in the United States Air Force Reserves. He is also project director for educational outreach grants through the CVM to aid in teaching science concepts to middle school students and he provides professional development training for science teachers.
