Nerdnite June 27 – Sleepin’ with the zombies
Dearest Friends of Nerdnite,
Please join us on Monday June 27th, 8pm at the Middlesex for another nerd-tastic evening of learning and beer. As always, DJ Claude Money will provide the nerd-appropriate tunes.
Talk 1: “Wake, REM, Light, Deep, and WTF: A Savage Journey to the Heart of Sleep & Dreams”
by Steve Fabregas
Steve is a professional sleeper, amateur photographer, and aspiring geek. He’s spent the last few years with Zeo, Inc, learning, thinking, and innovating in the world of sleep while trying to bridge the gap between scientific research and curious consumers. Steve’s not sure if the geek thing means that he’s aspiring to be a geek or that he’s already a geek who aspires to more; we think the answer is in the question.
Talk 2: The Neurobiology of Zombies
by Jeremy Kay
You might think of zombies as lowly B-movie material, but scientists have discovered many instances of zombie-like behavior in nature. Updating the talk that he gave several years ago, Jeremy will give some creepy examples. Jeremy is a postdoctoral fellow in neurobiology at Harvard — and one of the Nerdnite Boston Bosses. He loves referring to himself in the third person. His professional work concerns vision… his fascination with zombies is purely recreational. Really. Like, your brains will totally not get eaten if you show up. We promise.
Be there and be square!
