Café Scientifique: Twin U.S. and E.U. Brain Initiatives: Global Large-scale Neuroscience
|Sponsored by Ballston Science and Technology Alliance|
Two flagship neuroscience initiatives are changing the scale of how we study the brain. James L. Olds, Ph.D., University Professor of Molecular Neuroscience at George Mason University will argue that what we are seeing is a transformation. Cracking the brain's code will require science on the scale of the big space telescopes, the large hadron collider and the polar science programs. But the payoff could be enormous. Join us for his discussion on February 4th.
The goal of Café Scientifique is to make science more accessible and accountable by featuring speakers whose expertise spans the sciences and who can talk in plain English. Please come early to order table service and socialize. Special reduced-price burgers start at 5:30 p.m. Presentation begins at 6:15 p.m. followed by Q&A. No science background required! Café Scientifique is free and open to the public but advanced registration is requested.
