Information: True, personal stories of science told live on stage by Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai neuroscientists. From the tragic to the to the hilarious, we’ll explore the deeply human side of brain research. This is a Friedman Brain Institute special event inspired by The Story Collider, a storytelling program and podcast that curates true, personal stories about science. Spreading stories about science spreads understanding and represents a crucial mode of communication between scientists and the public. Science storytelling also pays homage to the trial-and-error, exciting, frustrating process of doing science to understand the world around us often not seen in the final polished product.
