Tickets for New York’s Rubin Museum of Art’s Brainwave program are now on sale to the public. This year’s theme is “mind over matter,” and the series includes a variety of artists, athletes, and scientists, among other specialists. In the paired conversations, featured speakers will talk about “the role the brain plays in helping us over-come adversity, survive tests of endurance and understand faith.”
Of particular note with the winter Olympics only weeks away is three-time Olympian and World Figure Skating Hall of Fame inductee Brian Boitano, speaking with research psychologist Roy F. Baumeister on Wednesday, January 15. Also, don’t miss Dana Alliance members Paul Glimcher and Antonio Damasio: Glimcher will speak with basketball legend and current Knicks announcer Walt Frazier on Jan. 31, and Damasio will talk with philosopher Rebecca Goldstein on March 6.
The Rubin Museum is a Brain Awareness Week partner.
