Share an interesting nugget

  • This location is shown only to members

After introductions, we'll share "nuggets". Give a short report on a journal, magazine, or news article, describe an experiment, tell a personal story, invent a possible scenario, ask a question, etc. Nuggets should be relevant to neuroscience and/or society or a combination of the two.

    Hi all, it was so nice to meet you all last night and hear and share everyone's nugget of information or experiences. I'm looking forward to meeting you all again soon. Has anybody thought about how physical exercise and moderate weight resistance aids the brain's synapses and other areas? In particular as the brain is a muscle, wouldn't it also strengthen similar to how the heart muscle strengthens from physical exertion? I'm thinking more in the area of how exercise may possibly delay some of the age related problems of dementia and Alzheimer's.

    Just a curious thought I wanted to through out there. Thanks!

    The Meetup was a wee bit unfocused, but that was to be expected with the "nugget" theme. The spirit was good and the participants were varied and interesting. One overbearing guy talked way too much.

    Hi all! This sounds like a great group and really looking forward to meeting everybody and share some great conversation. I will be commuting on the T and coming from work. It appears Central Station is the T stop. See you then!

    Thanks to all who sent venue suggestions. Had to make a choice. We can try other venues in the future. This one is easy for me to get to. For people who are driving, I recommend the Green Street parking garage. One block from Central Square and not expensive. This venue is also near the Central Square T station.
