Science Cafe: Brain Awareness Night!

Brain night event

From flies to humans and every animal in between, brains make behavior happen. Come explore the brain/behavior connection at a special Science Café on March 15!

From 6-7 pm, meet local neuroscientists and interact with hands-on brains- and behavior-themed exhibits suitable for all ages. Short, accessible talks by neuroscientists in the SECU Daily Planet Theater will celebrate national Brain Awareness Week and tell you what local neuroscientists are discovering.

At 7pm, our special guest, prominent neuroscientist Dr. Jeff Lichtman from Harvard University, will lead a Science Café. Afterward, the exhibits will re-open for one final celebration of brains and behavior
