Nerd Nite Vancouver #1 – The Neuroscience of Pleasure and Love

Nerd Nite is expanding to Vancouver!

This event is sponsored by the organization Nerd Nite not by Skeptics in the Pub, and the "event" is attending the presentation.

Everyone is invited to come. You can find Nerd Nite Portland on MeetUp at http://www.meetup.com/Nerd-Nite-Portland and on Facebook and at http://portland.nerdnite.com/

When: Wednesday, February 12, 2014, doors at 6:00pm, event at 7:00pm

Where: Kiggins Theater, 1011 Main Street, Vancouver, WA

Cost: $8.00 suggested cover at the door

Come early if you want to order food and drinks and get a good seat!

Is the brain chemistry behind our love for chocolate equivalent to that which drives infatuation with a new lover, the love of a particular song, or addiction? How does the brain sort out pleasure and discomfort? What drives our decisions to stay with one person for life or go from one lover to another, never settling down? This Nerd Nite will focus on these and other questions that reveal much about how neurochemical changes can have major effects on our behaviors—how we love, what we love, and who we love.

Dr. Larry Sherman is a Professor of Cell and Developmental Biology and Neuroscience at OHSU. He was identified as someone who is "Changing our World" by Portland Monthly Magazine and the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, and he was awarded OHSU Teacher of the Year in 2012.

*A note on the suggested cover: Nerd Nite is completely supported by money collected at the door. We are committed to offering education opportunities to adults who want to learn, so if $8 is a hardship for you, please come anyway and donate what you can.

    Just a reminder, this event is sponsored by Nerd Nite and not Skeptics in the Pub. Eric was kind enough to let us post on this calendar.
