A Taste of Neuroscience: How Your Brain Gives Life Flavor//Reel Science Series

This is a No-Host event!

How does the biology of taste affect how we make choices and how do these choices shape our culture? The NOVA special Mystery of the Senses - Taste will guide us as we discuss recent advances in the science of taste, while thinking about our own taste buds and how they flavor our experiences.

This stunning high-definition movie will serve as the springboard for a lively discussion about the science behind the beauty and wonder of nature.

Shabnam Hakimi, a graduate student in computation and neural sciences at Caltech, will introduce the film and guide the post-screening discussion.

Recommended for ages 8 and up. 
Please note this event is on a Friday morning and the languaging will most likely be geared toward children.

This is a special one-hour school-day performance. For more field trip opportunities, or to make reservations, please call Mary Herrera at (626)[masked] or email at [masked].
