brainstressYour brain cells are under tension.. literally. From single cells to nerves and spinal cords, biomechanical studies have revealed a surprising role of physical forces in shaping the nervous system. Join us to learn how our knowledge of neuronal mechanics could lead to new therapies for the injured nervous system.

This event is part of the San Diego Wetlab’s citizen science lecture series held every first Tuesday at 6:30pm at the La Jolla Library and every third Thursday at 6:30pm at the Downtown Library.   Please check the San Diego library system events page for location details and changes in the upcoming schedule.
