Most of us take for granted that the brain and its 86 billion neurons quietly goes about the business of being “you” without much fuss. It senses the environment, coordinates movement, processes thoughts, stores and recalls memories, and replays that song over and over and over again.
An Evening with Neuroscience is a celebration of that remarkable brain in your head. This event is an opportunity for the public to engage directly with brain researchers. We invite neuroscientists, psychologists, and clinicians to discuss up-and-coming research, dispel myths, answer your questions submitted prior to the event, and share a few brainy laughs with the public. After an hour of discussion, we will open up the floor to audience questions and discussion with the panelists. EVERYONE is invited to participate.
So, come join us for an informal, casual, and fun opportunity to learn about neuroscience. EVERYONE is invited – no neuroscience background needed! So, strike up a conversation, ask a question, and learn more about the “mush between your ears!”
With the ever evolving situation with COVID-19, we have decided to move An Evening with Neuroscience online. We care about our community and want to bring thought provoking neuroscience topics to you while supporting the global effort to slow the spread of the virus. Our goal has always been to improve scientific communication and access to neuroscience so instead of attending in person and engaging conversation with our panelists in person on May 1st, you can now watch our YouTube live streams on Fridays from April 10th to May 1st.
All our streams are interactive via the live comment section. To engage with the panelists, you can watch clips of the panelists answering interview questions on our Facebook page “Grey Matters Journal” or read information about them here. Afterwards, you can submit as many questions to the panelists as you’d like!
Here is our stream schedule:
On April 10th at 6:30pm, we’ll gear up the event with interactive brain teasers and showcase some of the incredible creations of our artists from recent issues! See the stream here: https://youtu.be/S_y3kcT2luo
On April 17th at 6:30pm, we’ll be hosting an online session of live brain pong!
On April 24th at 6:30pm, the biological structure department’s own Dr. Robinson and Dr. Mulligan will be conducting a brain dissection via live stream!
On May 1st at 7:00pm, we’ll have a live stream featuring our panel of neuroscientists, who’ll be answering all your burning questions about neuroscience!
Live closed captions are provided for all streams, and ASL interpreters will be interpreting the April 17th, April 24th, and May 1st streams.
