Proposed Session Title: How to consume neuroscience like a skeptic
Session Description:
Neuroscientist here! Let me just crack open your brain, and take a look-see-daisy inside. No? Ok, fine, let me just run a little scan-a-doodle. See how this bit "lights up" when you see a hamburger? That means you're hungry. Or vegan. Or, or, ... Well, to be perfectly honest, I really can't tell you much for certain. Neuroscience is just in its infancy. You know, like a baby that we oogle at and believe has soooo much potential and is totally going to change the world. Instead, hows about I show you how to consume neuroscience like a skeptic?
