Zombies and the Science of Braaaaains
Jacquelyn Omelian, UNL Assistant Professor of Practice in Psychology
March 11, 7:00pm
We all know zombies aren’t real… right? But what about a parasite that makes mice lose their fear of cats and end up as lunch? Or a virus that makes people terrified of a glass of water? Join us as we sort the fact from the fiction and explore the wonderfully weird world of the brain.
All talks are hosted in Love Library 2nd Floor Peterson Room.
