Science Cabaret: Neuroscience and Performance

  • Jun 15
  • @ 7:00pm

Waters Lab at Mt. Sinai and Farm Arts Collective

Saturday, June 15 at 7pm  $30                                          

In collaboration with scientists and researchers at Mount Sinai, Department of Psychiatry and Neuroscience, Farm Arts Collective presents an evening of science talks and performances on the topic of mental health.  Six clinical neuroscientists from The Waters Lab, (led by neuroscientist Allison Waters) will each prepare a brief presentation of their most cutting-edge research in neurotechnology and mental health treatment. Presentations are in the form of a “flash talk,” the style of science communication popularized by TED. Each scientist is paired with one performer from the Farm Arts Collective ensemble who will use the flash talk as inspiration for a new performance artwork.  The lively evening will explore themes unearthed by current advances in neuroscience research such as: Cyborgification- The promise of brain implants to treat severe depression and OCD; why ketamine was once a party drug but is now a medical treatment for depression; how to give your brain deeper sleep and slow diseases of aging.  Following the presentation we will have a conversation with farm fresh food.
