Dear friend of PI-Philly,

Don’t miss our next public event!

WHAT: Flying Through The Distracted Mind
“How our brains really function in the digital age”

Organized in partnership with The Franklin Institute and inspired by the NIH project that maps the neural pathways underling human brain function. The evening is aimed at exploring why our brains aren’t built for multitasking, and suggest better ways to live in a high-tech world without giving up our modern technology. But, it’s one thing to talk about it and it’s quite another to see these changes mapped out in three dimensions…

The Glass Brain Project created and being utilized in therapy by the speaker Adam Gazzaley and his colleagues at Gazzaley Labs will fly through a representation of a thinking human brain to show how technology maps onto the billions of the neurons that drive a human brain.

Moderated by Franklin Institute’s Chief Bioscientist, Dr. Jayatri Das

Adam Gazzaley, M.D., Ph.D.
Professor of Neurology, Physiology and Psychiatry
Director, Neuroscience Imaging Center
UCSF, San Francisco, CA

WHEN: Wednesday, October 19th, 6:30 – 8:00pm

WHERE: The Franklin Institute
222 North 20th Street
Philadelphia, PA 19103
