HAT MONTHLY MEETING: Dec 11, 1:30-3pm @ OISE: How the Brain Works

Date: Saturday, Dec. 11
Time: 1:30 – 3
Location: OISE, Room 4-422
Topic: How the Brain Works
Speaker: Dr. Luis Fornazzari

Dr. Fornazzari is a staff neurologist with the Memory Clinic at St. Michael’s Hospital and a neuropsychiatry consultant with the Mental Health Centre in Penetanguishene. His talk will address such fascinating issues as does the brain direct our behaviour; will we ever be able to understand the brain as an organ in the way we do the kidney or heart; how does the brain relate to thoughts, feelings, sensual experiences such as sound and colour (with special attention to music); do chimpanzees have a theory of mind; and will “mind control” ever become a reality?

All are welcome, no entry fee, as usual.
