Mind-Body Inquiry, May11

If mind is "what the brain does," how does the brain do it? And how are other parts of the body involved in creating mind? Wonderfest presents two neuroscientists with deep insights into the mind-body connection:
  • At 7:30pm, Elissa Epel, presents "A Sweet Story: Stress, Eating, and Mindfulness." Dr. Epel is Professor of Psychiatry and Director of UCSF's Aging, Metabolism, and Emotions Lab.
  • At 8:30pm, Howard Fields presents "How the Brain Creates a Virtual Mind-Body Experience." Dr. Fields is Professor of Neurology and Director of UCSF's Wheeler Center for the Neurobiology of Addiction.
Please join in this special Wonderfest contribution to Brain & Body NightLife at the California Academy of Sciences by purchasing tickets via the Cal Academy link below. [Note: The full NightLife experience begins at 6:00pm; only adults 21+ are admitted.]
