Suds & Science—Under Pressure: How the Body Uses Force to Function

Mon, Mar 09 - 6:30pm to 8:00pm

Sometimes, the most interesting discussions occur over a beer or a glass of your favorite vino. (Bonus points if you can remember what was said the next morning!) That’s the concept behind Suds & Science, a monthly event that brings scientists face-to-face with the general public in a neighborhood bar. Each session kicks off with a short and enlightening presentation, after which the floor is open for discussion between the audience and the speaker.

This month's topic is: Under Pressure: How the Body Uses Force to Function
Aristotle defined five senses: sight, smell, taste, hearing and touch. These are the senses that are most obvious to you but there are so many more! Your body also has many ways of detecting internal stimuli. Some are familiar to you, like balance and proprioception. Others quietly monitor your most important body functions. Whether it be your heartbeat, your churning stomach or your filling bladder, your nervous system detects force and tells the body to react appropriately. The mechanisms behind how this happens are still a new area of study. Dr. Marshall from Scripps Research will tell you about how you feel inside and why it matters to your health. Beer available for purchase. Bring your own favorite dinner!

Cost: $5 (plus fees) online; $6 at the door
