Support Science Study Break Today!

Event: Science Study Break features Dr. Michael Drew of the Department of Neuroscience on brain capacity. The event is free and open to the public.

When: 6 p.m., Tuesday, September 29, 2015.

Where: Student Activity Center Auditorium (SAC 1.402) at The University of Texas at Austin.

Background: By now the notion that humans use only 10% of their brains is accepted as an urban myth, but how much of our brain do we actually use?

Dr. Michael Drew of the Center for Learning and Memory (CLM) uses scenes from popular films and television shows like Lucy, Limitless and the BBC’s Sherlock to discuss the real capacity of the human mind.

Science Study Break is generously supported by the University Federal Credit Union. Read more about Science Study Break and past episodes.
