Pint of Science presents: The Art of Perception

 

About the event: 

Our ability to “sense” allows us to navigate safely, evade harm, and even socialize, but what happens when our brain inaccurately perceives signals from the outside world? At this brain-inspired Pint of Science event we will dive into the biology behind perception, from the organs that sense external cues to the neuronal response in the brain. Jim Hudspeth will take us into the inner ear to explain how hundreds of thousands of tiny hairs allow us to hear a diverse range of sounds. Paula Croxson will discuss how memory helps the brain interpret, and sometimes misinterpret, the signals it receives from the outside world. Come celebrate Brain Awareness Week with us and learn some sensational science over a beer! Register at theartofperception2016.eventbrite.com.

 

More about Pint of Science:

Pint of Science is back at the DROM as part of the Brain Awareness Week program! Pint of Science is a global science initiative that brings scientists out of the lab and into the informal atmosphere of a bar. We aim to create an environment full of inquiry, healthy debate, and scientific enthusiasm, where learning and critical thinking go hand in hand with social drinking. Visit our website at https://pintofscience.us for more information. For a calendar of other Brain Awareness Week events, go to comebebrainy.com/brainy.
