The San Diego Brain Club

  • Jul 30, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

 

July's topic thanks to Annie...  how and why we form social attachments. Why do some people immediately attract us and others irk us? Can we really modulate our emotional feelings? (Don't mean "faking it until we make it".) What is it that really draws people together and strengthens their bond?

Neurotransmitters?  Ancestral brain? Chemicals of attraction? Let's discuss, learn & bond together!

Bring brain foods to share... remember, red wine is good for the brain!

Please be on time...the brain likes certainty!

Remember to bring few dollars for the sugested donation. $$

    Another fascinating discussion about the Brain - this time with regards to attraction towards or away from other people and why, how that manifests in our brains, etc.

      When you are brought up on a potato farm and your father supplies chips (French Fries) and potatoes to all schools and many catering operations, not a wonder I am a chip addict!!!

    I love the background images with the brain food in the brain. To whom do I give credit? My fellow CBO?

    July 29, 2013

  • Sue S.

    Annie - what a great topic! Thank you for stepping up and providing some leadership for this conversation. I look forward to learning and perhaps adding content - particularly around emotional regulation.

    Looking forward to tomorrow!!

    Can you give the exact address for Ariane's house or will the meeting be conducted over a louds seaker so being in the general area is good enough?

    The grand opening of Bio, Tech, and Beyond (on meetup.com) is tomorrow in Carlsbad, and I'm planning to go. It looks like people who become a paying member -- I plan to join myself -- can host meetings there for free. I'll find out for sure soon, but meanwhile it would be fun to meet fellow Brain Clubbers there tomorrow. If not, I'll see you at BC on July 30!

      I'll be at San Diego Tech Week doing a presentation and can't make it to this. Looks interesting.
