Sensing the World Around Us


Name Email Phone
Linn Roth 608-238-2297

Through interactive presentations and demonstrations, this course will provide an introduction to neuroscience: how neurons work, how the brain is organized, and how we hear, see, taste, smell, touch and balance. No background in science or preparation required. If you have an interest in the brain, our senses, and asking questions, join us to learn how we perceive the world around us, how much we distort that world, and how the brain creates each individual’s reality. Programs will include a brief review of how senses change with age, common myths about the brain, plus questions and answers.
