Science Café on July 15th, 2013

Nova presents: Science Café Woo on ‘Fight or Flight: How do we learn to be afraid?

Guest speaker: Justin Golub, from Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts.

How do you react in dangerous situations? All animals, including humans, gather information from their environment to avoid danger, find food and search for mates. Dr. Golub will talk about his research using fish as a model to study how animals learn to respond to dangerous stimuli from an early age and how that affects their evolution.

Date: July 15
Time: 6pm
