Long Description: 

Test the limits of your cerebral cortex on a night dedicated to brain power.  Gather up a team and compete in a pub-style trivia showdown hosted by Brainstormers, or outsmart your friends in a game of oversized chess or checkers.  Explore the big questions in neuroscience—how our brains code memories, what processes enable creative thinking, and beyond—with cognitive neuroscientist Indre Viskontas. And learn how cephalopod smarts differ from our own during a talk about flamboyant cuttlefish by an Academy aquarium biologist. Music by DJ Eric Sharp (Rock It Science Laboratories).
