How do our senses determine our experiences, perceptions, and motivations? Join us in the lab for an evening exploring the biology behind our senses. Participate in activities, challenges, and experiments led by neuroscience researchers and educators. Listen to your own neurons fire, see a real human brain, test your taste buds, and learn the limits of your own sensory repertoire. Wine and light refreshments will be served.
