Birmingham SCI Cafe

October 18, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

McWane Science Center and the Research Civitan Club of UAB are joining forces to bring you the new and improved BIRMINGHAM SCI CAFE. Join other science geeks (and science novices) for an exciting presentation, lively discussion and a little science trivia at the Birmingham Science Cafe, every third Tuesday at John’s City Diner in downtown Birmingham.

This month’s topic is Zombie Neuroscience, presented by Matt Defenderfer, UAB Department of Neurobiology. Using scientific portrayals from Hollywood, can we determine what causes a zombie to act like a zombie? Take a look at how neuroscience can be applied to the walking dead.
