Living in the Future: Brains!

September 14, 2018, 6:00 - 8:30 p.m.

Where science fiction meets science reality

Thank you for your interest. This event has SOLD OUT.

Can we bring back the dead? Control machines with our minds? Create human-like robots? Find out how today's neuroscience advances reflect what we've seen on-screen. Sit back, grab some pizza and popcorn, watch a short a clip from a science fiction movie, then hear from brainy scientists and inventors about how close Hollywood’s hopes are to reality!
