The Flandrau Science Center will hold a “Science Café” on April 12, 2011 at 6:00-7:30 p.m. A Science Café is a casual forum for people to meet and discuss a particular science topic with ascientist in the relaxed atmosphere of a local restaurant.
Dr. Mary Peterson, director of the UA Cognitive Science Program and UA professor will discuss “Mind Games: What Optical Illusions Tell Us About the Brain” and an understanding of how humans perceive the world in three dimensions when the receptors life on the retina, a flat surface. Dr. Peterson will demonstrate some of these optical illusions and lead a discussion on what they reveal about the brain.
The Science Café will be held at Cushing Street Bar & Restaurant located on the corner of Cushing Street & Meyer Avenue in Downtown Tucson, across the street from the Convention Center. Complimentary, lighted, on-site parking is available on the east side of the restaurant.
