Think Big: A Night Out with Your Brain
On May 22, 2015, more than 200 members of the Calgary community gathered at the Calgary Public Library to take part in the 'The Amazing Brain & its Juggling Act,' the inaugural event in the Think Big: A Night Out with Your Brain series.
Exploring the science behind memory, the evening was hosted by Jay Ingram with talks from HBI researchers Cam Teskey, PhD and Jaideep Bains, PhD, and interactive activities facilitated by HBI trainees. The Think Big series – a partnership with the HBI and the Library – aims to inspire curiosity about neuroscience and engage the local community to learn about brain and mental health.
