How Does the Brain Work?

Film Screening: How Does the Brain Work?

Thursday, November 3rd at 3:00 PM

Allen Library Auditorium

The UW undergraduate Neurobiology Club would like to invite you to join us in watching ‘How Does the Brain Work?’; part of the NOVA ScienceNOW series.

How do magic tricks and optical illusions work, and how can we learn more about the functions of the brain by learning about how to trick the brain? You’ll also learn about the future of ‘magnetic mind control’ research using Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) and about new developments in artificial intelligence research.

All of this will help to answer one of neuroscience’s most important questions: How does the brain put together ‘reality’ for us?

Faculty from the Neurobiology and Behavior department will also be joining us to host an informal discussion and question-and-answer panel immediately after the screening.

The event is open to the public and there is no charge to attend. Film runtime is approximately 1 hour.

This event is hosted by the Neurobiology Club, a club run by undergraduate Neurobiology majors dedicated to encouraging the community at large to get excited about neuroscience!
