This Science Study Break has been postponed. Check back in the coming days for new details. Apologies for any inconvenience.
Tomorrow night (4/13), SSB welcomes Dr. Alison Preston from the Center for Learning and Memory to discuss how our brains form and recall memories working from film references in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Memento, and from television’s “Dollhouse.”
The fun takes place at 6pm in Painter Hall, 4.42, and, as always, features lively discussion and light snacks.
Science Study Break uses entertainment education to examine the reality and fantasy portrayed as fact in science-themed television and movies. Programs feature expert university faculty presenting brief lectures and engaging in informal discussions with attendees.
