Hello everyone,

Thanks Steve for your wonderful suggestion and helping keep it active for us.  That sounds absolutely fascinating and I will definitely post it for our March 3rd meetup.  

I also will shortly be posting another one for February 20th, the 3rd saturday from 2-5pm plus dinner.  This meetup will be focusing on neurophysiology and the neurotechnological inventions of Hershel Toomim, and his partner, Stephanie Dupont, a psychologist, and their work in Biofeedback and Biocomp Research.  I'd like to extend a special invitation to all the therapists and scientists in our group where we will have the attendance of a neuroscientist, a member of our group, which should help perpetuate a very interesting Q&A discussion and will I'm sure be a fascinating subject and discussion for all our members.

And lastly, to Alla and anyone else who wants to control incoming emails... this last string was meant as a communication for all B&C members, so for those of you who wish to curb your emails, go to the meetup site, click on account, then on the left, click on membership and communication.  You can select your email preferences there.

Thank you everyone for your participation.  I'm really excited about these two meetups and will be posting them very soon.  Take good care, and looking forward to seeing you at our next gathering.

Volee
Assistant Organizer

Meetup suggestion that I think would ROCK!
March 3, 2010
Antonio Damasio: Art and the Conscious Brain
President���s Forum
ANTONIO DAMASIO: ART AND THE CONSCIOUS BRAIN
Introduced by CalArts President Steven D. Lavine
���Astonishing... a passionately erudite, penetrating tour
through the human mind.���
San Francisco Chronicle, on Damasio's Descartes��� Error


For millennia, the relationship between reason and emotion and
the nature of creativity has remained a mystery.
Internationally renowned neuroscientist Antonio Damasio visits
REDCAT to speak about what we now know about the emotions and
the conscious mind, particularly as both relate to creativity
and the arts. As founding director of USC���s Brain and
Creativity Institute, Damasio has been employing state-of-the-
art brain imaging techniques as well as developing new research
methods in collaboration with artists and social scientists to
elucidate the neural basis of the emotions and the central role
of emotions in social cognition and decision-making. Damasio is
author of the widely acclaimed book Descartes��� Error: Emotion,
Reason, and the Human Brain, among other titles.
