This Leonardo After Hours -- Are You Your Brain? -- will explore how your neurons, synapses, and all that gray matter work to learn, create, and morph memories to make you who you are. And because some questions of identity simply cannot be explained by pure biology, we'll also delve into some of the more mysterious questions of how you become you:
Can experiences actually rewire your brain on a physical level?
Is any memory a true memory?
How do the stories you tell yourself and others change who you are?
Can fake memories be etched into your neurons and synapses?
Enjoy an evening of fascinating facts, video clips, audio snippets, and scintillating conversation with experts and audience members on Tuesday, March 8, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at The Leonardo Garage, 375 N. 500 West, Unit B, in Salt Lake City.
Featured experts include:
Christopher German, PhD, research associate, the Brain Institute at the University of Utah
