Evening with

APRIL 17, 2020
Kane Hall 130, UW

Pre-Panel Events start at 6:30 p.m.
Panel begins at 7:00 p.m.



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!”


Date: April 17, 2020
Time: Begins at 6:30 p.m.
Where: Kane Hall 130 at the University of Washington
Cost: FREE
