Mardi Gras!We’ve got big brains for Fat Tuesday.

Spectacular data. Exquisite images. At the next Secret Science Club, neuroscientist Carl Schoonover presents a wondrous, whirlwind survey of the scientific tools that help us “see” the brain.

With medieval sketches, intricate drawings by Leonardo da Vinci and Santiago Ramón y Cajal, and new images of neuronal architectures revealed by microscopes,electrophysiological instruments, and MRI machines, Dr. Schoonover illuminates the brain’s gorgeous complexities and some of neuroscience’s most brilliant achievements.

Carl Schoonover is a postdoctoral fellow int he Axel laboratory at Columbia University, where he studies the neural circuitry of odor-driven behaviors. He is the author of Portraits of the Mind, has written for the New York Times, Le Figaro, and ScientificAmerican, and co-founded NeuWrite, a collaborative working group forscientists, writers, and those in between. His radio program on WKCR89.9FM, focuses on opera, postwar classical music, and their relationship to the brain.
