“The Science of Vision: Is Perception really Reality?” by Dr. Tiago Siebert Altavini
Humans use vision to navigate the world and our brains are designed to process different types of visual information. However, there are flaws in this system, which can be affected by many factors, biasing what we see. Come hear about how our memories, expectations, and brain’s limitations influence visual perception.

“The Science of Brain Stem Cells” by Dr. Chiara Bertipaglia
Stem cells are cells that have the ability to divide forever, creating the specialized cells that make up organs like the skin, heart, and brain. Because of their unique properties, they are crucial to development of an organism. Come hear about the science of stem cells, especially those that make up the brain, and learn about neurological conditions caused by errors in brain stem cell division, as well as how stem cells can be used as therapies in disease.
