Brains on Tap

"Brains on Tap" was inspired by the Cafe Scientifique movement, which started in Europe in the late 1990’s and has spread rapidly. Cafes Scientifiques are informal talks in bars, cafes and other public venues that give people a chance to learn about and discuss current topics in science. 

"Brains on Tap" was brought to Kent in 2012 by the local Northeast Ohio chapter of the Society of Neuroscience.  The Brain Health Research Institute rebooted the program during Brain Awareness Week - March 13-17, 2023.
