Brain Buzz - How Your Brain Works
Free and open to the public

How do scientists study the brain? What is it about our human brain that is different from other animals and what is the same? What is it that makes our brains uniquely human? Come discover the answers to these questions and more. PhD students Max Mehlman and Emily Stephens, current researchers at Dartmouth, will be leading a conversation about their research in the field of neuroscience. They will talk about how the brain functions, different parts of the brain, what brain cells do, and much more!

About the Speakers:
.
Emily Stephens is a 5th year PhD Candidate working in a neurophysiology lab at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth. She attended Albion College in south central Michigan where she studied biochemistry and neuroscience. As an undergraduate, she did behavioral neuroscience research with non-human primates and also organic chemistry research. Currently her work at Dartmouth focuses on understanding how the outermost part of the brain, the cortex, functions and how chemicals in our brain can alter our behavior.
.
Max Mehlman attended the University of New Hampshire, earning bachelor's degrees in psychology and zoology. Subsequently, Max studied animal behavior at field research stations in Australia, California, and Maine. Max is currently a 6th year PhD Candidate at Dartmouth College investigating circuits in the brain that generate our sense of direction and location. These circuits operate much like a compass and GPS, providing us with the knowledge we need to efficiently navigate.
