“Brains on Tap!” Come hear about cool brain research going on in Kent

"Brains on Tap" is designed to be an informal talk held in a bar/restaurant that gives people a chance to learn about and discuss current topics in science.


The Society for Neuroscience (SfN), Northeast Ohio Chapter, is sponsoring “Brains on Tap” to bring information about local neuroscience research to the community. Our first talk this year is:

"Whisper of the Devil: What is Tinnitus, Anyway?" - presented by Dr. Alex Galazyuk, Ph.D., a professor at NEOMED.  Monday, March 11th, 5:30pm @ Bar 145 in downtown Kent (100 E. Erie Street).  The event is free to the public.

Talks are designed to be fun and we encourage questions and discussion! Our events are open to anyone and everyone. While not all topics may be of interest to children, they are welcome to attend. Bring your appetite for food, drinks and knowledge!

Our local SfN chapter promotes educational outreach to the community, and this is our second Brains on Tap event.  We hope to have these talks several times a year – there’s a lot of cool research going on right around here!  A similar event happens monthly up in Cleveland (it’s called the Science Café and is worth checking out), but the neuroscience community here has a surprisingly strong presence for this small region.  We’re psyched to share our work with the community and hope you can join us.  And by us, we mean neuroscience professors, researchers, and graduate students at Kent State, NEOMED, and other local universities, who are members of our local SFN chapter.

"Brains on Tap" was inspired by the Cafe Scientifique movement, which started in Europe in the late 1990’s and has spread rapidly. Cafes Scientifiques are informal talks in bars, cafes and other public venues that give people a chance to learn about and discuss current topics in science.
