Noggin has been invited to talk brains, brain research and art with student members of the BRAIN (Biological Research and Investigations in Neuroscience) Club at the Sidwell Friends School from 3:25 – 4:30pm. There is a parking garage off of Wisconsin, and we’ll meet in the Upper School, Room 200 by the elevator. 

We’ll bring our volunteers pursuing federally funded research on Parkinson’s, caffeine, alcohol, social relationships, implicit bias, and adolescent brain development. We’ll bring real human brains to examine, courtesy of Paul Aravich from Eastern Virginia Medical School, and Sidwell is providing pipe cleaners for a chance to make our own brain cells, and learn about the value of arts-based instruction firsthand…

The Club is also presenting their own poster at the Society for Neuroscience conference, in the Teaching of Neuroscience Poster Session; VV36 from 3-4 pm on Sunday, November 12…
