In our newest science communication offering, neuroRANT, learn what myths and miscommunications make neuroscientists want to pull their … neurons out. And feed your brain with the FACTS - directly from the experts’ mouths.
In these 45 minute online events Orsha Magyar will push and prod top experts in neuroscience to share what makes them really mad. She will encourage them to share their deepest, darkest pet peeves about how the topics they’re most passionate about and dedicate their lives to working with are being misconstrued to the public. She’ll ask them to dispel their most loathed myth in their industry. And she will have them correct misconceptions that many of us may currently believe (you will be shocked by some of them!) so that you are well informed about the hottest brain and mental health topics. Because at this workshop, the experts are going to RANT. And you are not going to want to miss out.
