Got something on your mind? The brain is a complex organ made up of neurons, hemispheres, neo cortex, a medul oblongata and a bunch of other stuff. It's used for thinkin. But is that all that the mind is? Does the brain act as a container for the mind or is it synonymous with the mind? Beyond simple function and form, the mind provides so many insights into animal behavior. Psychosis, memory, bodily functions, and reality are just a handful of the myriad questions we have around the mind. Join us as our speakers share their perspectives, views, questions and answer about the mind.
This is a nonprofit event.
20X20: All of the presentations are exactly 20 slides and each slide is timed to exactly 20 seconds for a total of 6 minutes and 40 seconds. It's the PechaKucha way!
What to expect:
Come to the Silver Spring Civic Building on Friday, November 30, 2018 from 7-9:30PM. Spend the first ~20 minutes chatting with some friends, digging tunes, and enjoying beer, wine and light snacks. Around 7:20PM, we'll have the first half of presenters. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll be full of awe. Intermission. We encourage you to discuss ideas that you heard or considered through the first half. Maybe discuss it with a stranger. We'll have the second half of presenters where you'll go through a similar roller coaster of emotion as before. Afterwards, hang out and chat until we kick you out.
Best parking option:
Town Square Garage 61 Free after 7PM

We do, however, encourage you to walk, bicycle, take public transit or carpool. Or rollerblade.
