Scientist in the Spotlight: Genes with Michael Zaccheo 
General Event Information
Event Category:
Community Events
Price:
Included in Museum Admission  
Dates and Times:
August 1, 2:00PM-4:00PM

Your genes are telling you what to think! All of your cells, including the cells that make up your brain, manufacture all sorts of chemicals and structures - and they do it according to the instructions of your genes. One of the chemicals made by brain cells is Dopamine and one of the structures made by brain cells is Dopamine receptors. When one brain cell exports Dopamine and that Dopamine fits onto another cell’s receptor, a connection is made.

Join biological anthropologist Michael Zaccheo as he explains how these connections affect how we feel and act, if we’re motivated to continue a task and how long our attention stays focused. He will discuss how our genes, it seems, are not only telling us what to think, they’re telling some of us to think differently from the rest and we’re listening.
