Universe of the Brain Lecture Series
Dr. Liisa Galea & Dr. Julie Robillard
Are you left brained or right brained, or is that even a thing? Will champagne improve your memory? Can you really beat depression with a walk in the woods? Discover what’s fact and what’s fake with neuroscientists Dr. Liisa Galea and Dr. Julie Robillard. Enjoy an evening of lively discussion as these leading researchers debunk the modern mythology of the human brain and teach you how to separate peer-reviewed fact from creative nonfiction.
The Universe of the Brain lecture series is a collaboration between The H.R. MacMillan Space Centre and the Djavad Mowafaghian Centre for Brain Health. Take part in an interactive evening on the universe of the mind, and come away with a better understanding of your brain through a dialogue with leading experts on neuroscience, plus state-of-the-art visuals, all under the dome of the planetarium star theatre.
