The Department of Neuroscience at The University of Texas at Austin is excited to announce that UT Brainstorms: A Conversation on the Brain, is returning for a second year, at a brand new location! The purpose of UT Brainstorms is to connect with the Austin community, and ultimately with the Texas community, to inform and educate about neuroscience research and the influences it has on our daily lives.

We seek a two-way conversation where we share our expertise about the brain and we listen to what it means in people’s lives and to the challenges they face as it relates to the brain.  Dr. Michela Marinelli will conduct the first session on September 29th: “The Craving Brain: A Conversation About Vulnerability to Drug Addiction. Our goal for the 2018-19 season of UT Brainstorms is to move to a larger venue (the Lady Bird Johnson auditorium) which is over four times the size, and will allow us to reach a much larger audience.

From now until October 5th, the Department of Neuroscience is raising $15,000 to support UT Brainstorms. We are asking those people that have supported us along the way to help support us now as well. Would you please contribute to our goal? A gift of any amount will be a big help. This public education event is free to the community. For more information and to RSVP, please click here.   (or Email: neurochair@austin.utexas.edu / Phone: (512) 232-7594).  Complimentary parking is available on-site at LBJ on a first-come, first-served basis.
