Saturday STEM Seminar: How Does the Brain Make Memories?
September 16 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 amFree
During Science City’s Saturday STEM Seminars, local STEM professionals present hot topics in science, technology, engineering and math, as well as highlights of their education and career paths. A Q&A session follows. The seminars, geared toward students in grades 7-12, are open to the public. Registration is required, but walk-ups are welcome!
Note to teachers: Give your students extra credit for attending and YOU can WIN for sending the most students (one contest per semester)! Students will take notes during the seminar, and these will be stamped on their way out for proof of attendance!
In this session, hear from Dr. Kausik Si, a developmental neuroscientist, who is the Scientific Director for the Stowers Institute.
The brain stands between the world and us. Within the brain are proteins, which perform tasks necessary for brain function. We will explore how proteins help the brain recreate the world for us and encode memories of things we love and fear.
