Tickets are now on sale to the public for the 2014 World Science Festival. The events take place from May 28 to June 1 and, as always, feature a great lineup of speakers from the neuroscience arena and other science fields. Notably, Dana Alliance members Eric Kandel and Ann Graybiel join others in a discussion about the scientific achievements of Kavli Laureates (the Kavli Prizes recognize scientists for major advances in astrophysics, nanoscience and neuroscience) on Thursday, May 29.
Other fascinating topics with a brain slant include addiction, the human experience of time, brain-machine interaction, and color processing. The last one features a sound and light show at the end that represents “the colors a young synesthete has in her head when she rocks out on the electric violin.” How cool is that?
We’ll be covering some of the events on our blog, so be on the lookout in early June!
