Open Mic Science returns to the Treehouse Café with 'Neuroscience in the mainstream'

Open Mic Science presents “Judy Tingley: Neuroscience in the mainstream” at 8 p.m. Monday, Dec. 3 at the Treehouse Café.

Neuroscience, the new and somewhat controversial media celebrity, has entered the mainstream. Tingley will give an update on the latest research, theories and tips for optimal problem-solving thinking as well as other new, unusual findings about our brain and mind.

Every month, Open Mic Science invites the public to featured talks by local scientists at the informal setting of the Treehouse Café. Tingley is a psychologist and writer whose latest writing focuses on metacognition, thinking about thinking. She’s the author of four books on workplace communication and influence.

She blogs at www.intelligentwomenonly.com and has been a guest blogger on sharpbrains.com. Her expertise is in translating psychological and neuroscientific research into understandable, useful and interesting articles and presentations.
