TEDxMarin presents The Brain and Consciousness
June 6, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:45 pm PDT
On Thursday, June 6th TEDx Marin is proud to present a very special SALON and community gathering. They will explore the latest research on the human brain, meditation, dementia, and consciousness. Remarkable new evidence will be shared about what happens in the brain (second by second) when we bring focus inward, and why it’s so beneficial. They’ll also explore how and if consciousness remains when the wiring breaks down, as in Alzheimer’s, and they’ll discuss our understanding of the age-old question, “what IS consciousness?”
This SALON includes a Pre-talk community reception connecting our 500+ attendees, including a showcase of interesting non-profits, start-ups, and local companies and services. No Host Bar and very light food tastes will be avail.
We hope you will attend this heady and heartfelt TEDxSalon on The Brain and Consciousness.
Community gathering begins at 6:30 pm. Presentations begin at 8 pm.
Mark Coleman will be the host and moderate. Dr. Helen Weng, PhD, Dr. Dale Bredesen, and Cassandra Vieten, PhD will discuss.
