Although due to time constraints we were unable to secure club funding or discounts for student tickets (normally $8 per person) for the Science on Tap event The Neuroscience of Trauma: From Trigger Warnings to PTSD on Tuesday, November 17th (https://www.facebook.com/events/898646630224162/) we would still like to discuss the topic as a group. Whether you attend the Science on Tap event or not, we would like to offer a place to think and share ideas about the neuroscience of trauma. We have a few days inbetween the event and our discussion to dig up research at our leisure that may be included in the Science on Tap talk. * There will be free chocolate-covered strawberries and coffee provided at this event! Feel free to arrive tired with a sweet tooth! - - - - - From the event page (https://www.facebook.com/events/898646630224162/) : Experiencing traumatic events can lead to physical, chemical, and epigenetic alterations in the brain, and neuroscientists are beginning to understand how those changes affect our behavior. At this Science on Tap, Dr. Larry Sherman, http://www.ohsu.edu/xd/research/research-expertise/researchers/index.cfm?personid=2340, a senior scientist in the Division of Neuroscience at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU), will explore the various ways the brain is modified following traumatic events, and will look at ways neuroscientists are trying to address these changes to help people with PTSD, depression, and other neuropsychiatric disorders. Dr. Larry Sherman has spoken at several of our past events, including "You and Your Racist Brain: The Neuroscience of Prejudice," and "Lust, Chocolate, and Prairie Voles: The Neuroscience of Pleasure and Love." This topic will be repeated at Science on Tap Portland at the Clinton Street Theater on Tuesday, November 17, 2015. ***EVENT DETAILS*** DATE: Tuesday, November 17, 2015 TIME: Doors at 6 p.m. event at 7 p.m. LOCATION: Clinton Street Theater, 2522 SE Clinton Street, Portland, Ore.
