What about your brain fascinates you most?

In particular how the sympathetic and parasympathetic divisions (aka cranio-sacral division) work together to maintain homeostasis. The 12 pairs of cranial nerves, the interaction between the hypothalamus and pituitary gland as their effect on the rest of the body in maintaining homeostasis, cardiovascular control, that there is still so much we don't understand about the brain and yet to discover....Its complexity, effectiveness, preciseness, anatomy, physiology and beauty. ALL OF IT!!! :o)

We explore brain health, physiology, psychology, medicine, consciousness, metaphysics and physics. What areas are you most interested in?

Brain health, physiology, medicine, and physics. In particular I am interested in how diseases affect the brain and physiology of the brain.

What do you want to learn about through our meetups?

Everything I can! Any I have time for of course, but especially lectures and gatherings to discuss the brain.

Any other comments?

I am a college Anatomy and Physiology Professor who is fascinated about the entire human body, especially the brain!!!! I also have a background in Microbiology. Science is part of my daily life and want to share it with others who love it as much!
