Universe of the Brain

7:30pm-9:30pm, Jun 27, 2017

HR MacMillan Space Centre, 1100 Chestnut Street, Vancouver
Presenter: 
Dr. Cheryl Wellington & Dr. Claudia Krebs

As the universe expands, so does our ability to comprehend it. Our intellect has taken us to space, to the moon, and to Mars, but how much do we know about the brain itself? Like the universe, the mysteries of the brain are still unravelling. And whether we take an analytical approach or look to the arts to interpret what’s going on out there (or in here), there are many, many ways to look at the brain.

Join The H.R. MacMillan Space Centre and the DjavadMowafaghian Centre for Brain Health for 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 neuroanatomy and neurotrauma, plus state-of-the-art visuals and an interpretation of neural processes through dance, all under the dome of the planetarium star theatre.
