Public lecture: Neuroscience Convergence talk, “The Black Box” (November 25, 2016)

RI-MUHC neuroscience trainees are teaming up with Concordia University fine arts students for an outreach project!

The Brain Repair and Integrative Neuroscience (BRaIN) Program of the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (RI-MUHC) is proud to support “Convergence, Perceptions of Neuroscience.” The initiative of research associate Dr. Cristian Zaelzer, this project brings together neuroscience trainees from the BRaIN Program and students from the Concordia University Faculty of Fine Arts to create works of art inspired by trainees’ research projects. A public event and exhibit is planned for the annual meeting of the Canadian Association for Neuroscience at la Grande Bibliothèque (BaNQ) and Hotel Bonaventure in May 2017.

You are invited to join a group of artists and neuroscientists for a special lecture that will give you a key to unlock the knowledge of the brain: this mysterious black box, home of the consciousness, creativity, emotion and rationality. The lecture, sponsored by the Canadian Association for Neuroscience, is intended for a lay audience. 

Subject: “The Black Box”

Where: Montreal General Hospital of the MUHC, 1650 Cedar Avenue, at the Livingston Lounge (L6 500)

When: November 25, from 5 to 6 PM

Presenters: Marie Franquin and Sejal Davla, PhD candidates
