As someone who recently finished the latest Dan Brown book, I understand the entertainment value of a fluff read–particularly when on vacation. But as the Fourth approaches and many of you look forward to beach getaways or some down-time in the back yard, consider reading one of the brain-related books recently published by our Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives (DABI) members. You’ll certainly learn something and your friends are sure to be impressed.
Tickets for the World Science Festival in New York City go on sale to the general public today. The series of events will take place May 29-June 2, and will cover topics from many scientific fields. Of the neuroscience offerings, be sure to check out Dana grantee Nicholas Schiff and others in a discussion about consciousness, Nita Farahany’s talk about neuroscience and the law, and Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives member James Watson’s lecture about his work on DNA and beyond.
