The inner workings of the human brain will be the topic of a four-day series of lectures starting March 11.
Brain School, as it’s called, is free and open to the public – although you must register to attend.
Here’s an announcement from the event’s host, the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute:

Wednesday, March 13 – When Brains Do Things We Would Rather They Didn’t
