taste of science - Brain Awareness Week


Consciousness: scientists and philosophers have puzzled over it for centuries, but struggle to agree on its definition. It allows us to relate and respond to our surroundings and ourselves, but how does the brain create it and what happens when our awareness becomes disrupted? Join us, and our guests Drs. Jean-Rémi King (NYU) and Mark Baxter (Mt. Sinai), as we explore the power and vulnerability of the brain at our special Brain Awareness Week event. Learn how neuroscientists identify the brain architecture that underpins consciousness. Discover how drugs, like anesthesia, affect conscious experience. Play neuroscience-inspired interactive games, while altering your brain chemistry with your beverage of choice!

Taste of Science is a 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. So, come drink a beer (or two!), make a friend, and feed your science curiosity!
