Jews and the Brain: Friday night dinner with member and neuroscientist, Daniel Glaser, in conversation with Rabbi Jeremy
15th March 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm£10 – £25
These days, neuroscience seems to think it can explain everything. Once upon a time religion did also. New imaging techniques produce more and more impressive pictures of the brain while religious investigators seek the ultimate nature of human existence without MRIs or CTs. Join two New Londoners seeking overlap between scientific and religious perspectives on the brain, and wondering if each can enlighten the other.
Dr Daniel Glaser is a neuroscientist who has worked for many years promoting public engagement with science. He wrote a weekly column for the Guardian and presents a Guardian podcast. He was Founding Director of Science Gallery London and was previously at Wellcome Trust. The first ‘Scientist in Residence’ at the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) he was also the first scientist to judge the Man Booker.
