Special Seminar – WHOI & Falmouth Stem Booster Sponsored

August 17, 2016 by Julia Pearl

WHOI
Redfield Auditorium 45 Water Street
Woods Hole, MA 02543

“Functional Imaging of the Human Brain as a Window into the Mind” Nancy Kanwisher, MIT

Public lecture sponsored by the Falmouth STEM Boosters and the WHOI Information Office

Join Dr. Nancy Kanwisher, Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience at MIT and Investigator at MIT’s McGovern Institute for Brain Research, as she shares striking new understandings of the human brain. Some of these findings were presented in a recent New York Times article, “New Ways Into the Brain’s Music Room.”

Twenty-five years ago with the invention fMRI it became possible to image neural activity in the normal human brain.  Many regions have been shown to carry out highly specific mental functions, like the perception of faces, speech sounds, and music, and even very abstract mental functions like understanding a sentence or thinking about another person’s thoughts. Dr. Kanwisher will discuss some of the evidence for highly specialized brain regions, what  these findings imply and what they do not, and what is next. To see Kanwisher’s short talks on the brain, which require no scientific background, go to:

http://nancysbraintalks.mit.edu/

The event is free and open to the public. Students are welcome and encouraged! Donations made at the door will benefit the FalmouthSTEM Boosters, a local non-profit organization connecting Falmouth Public School teachers and students with science, technology, engineering and math resources and opportunities.  For more information on the lecture and the STEM Boosters, contactinfo@falmouthSTEMboosters.org or the WHOI Information Office at 508-289-2252.
