Ask a Neuroscientist
Everything you have ever thought or done has been because of the billions of cells in your brain firing messages to one another -- from the simple tasks like breathing to complexities of our relationships.
Join us this Thursday, March 1st as neurobiologist and science communicator, Samantha Yammine, visits the lab to talk to us about all things brainy. In this fun and interactive talk, Samantha will share with you some of her favourite facts and mythbusts about our squishy, squiggly brains. In addition to sharing the cool things we currently know about the brain, she will also give you a taste of some of the latest research and mysteries that remain.
There will be plenty of time for questions and commentary, and all are welcome - whether you're a brain fanatic or completely new to science, there will be something for everyone!
Did we also mention that we will be serving popcorn and Muskoka Brewery beer?

Samantha Yammine is a Science Communicator and Neurobiologist completing her PhD at the University of Toronto. She studies how stem cells help build the brain before we're born and maintain it during adult life. By mapping out family trees of how the billions of cells in our brains were made, she hopes one day we'll be able to regenerate the brain after injury or disease.
