BrainStorm Neuroscience Pitch Competition: Finalists for Tom Slick Research Awards to be announced August 10!
BrainStorm is an event that connects neuroscience researchers with the coaching and capital they need to fund their research projects. Join the Mind Science Foundation for an engaging experience as neuroscience research finalists pitch their innovative ideas for groundbreaking science. Join in the fun by casting your vote to help decide which researcher should win the evening's research awards.
Special Guest Mark Mitton: How Magic Works
While your votes are being tallied, our host for the evening, Mr. Mark Mitton, a professional magician who is fascinated by using magic to better understand how we see the world, will present a short talk on "How Magic Works" - how the brain perceives and interprets visual information, and the ways in which magicians exploit this to perform their illusions. In addition to performing at events all over the world and creating magic for film and stage productions, Mark explores the theme of "Misdirection" from an interdisciplinary standpoint. He regularly presents on "Perception" at universities and conferences in North America and Europe, including the Association for the Scientific Study of Consciousness, and has lectured with the late Nobel Laureate Dr. Gerald Edelman of The Neurosciences Institute.
Presenting the 3 finalists for BrainStorm!
