UT BRAINSTORMS: A Conversation on the Brain 

The Department of Neuroscience at the University of Texas at Austin presents UT Brainstorms: A Conversation on the Brain. The purpose of UT Brainstorms is to connect with the community to inform and educate about neuroscience research and the influences it has on our daily lives.  We seek a two-way conversation where we share our expertise about the brain and we listen to what it means in people’s lives and to the challenges they face as it relates to the brain. 

When: The dates for the 2020 UT Brainstorms Series are listed below.  A different topic and faculty speaker will be featured each date.   Please check back regularly to learn more about upcoming speakers and topics!

Where: All Brainstorms public outreach events are currently virtual, and will be livestreamed at: Youtube.com/c/UTbrainstorms.
