VIRTUAL EVENT: BrainStorm Neuroscience Pitch Competition 2020

Tuesday, 29 September, 2020 6:30 pm

 As the future of large gatherings is still uncertain, out of concern for the health and safety of participants and attendees, the live Competition event has now been moved to a VIRTUAL EVENT. More details will be provided here as they become available.

BrainStorm is an event that connects neuroscience researchers with the coaching and capital they need to fund their research projects. Join Mind Science for an engaging experience as neuroscience research finalists pitch their innovative ideas for groundbreaking science. Be part of the fun by casting your vote to help decide which researcher should win the evening's research awards. The winner is announced live online!

The evening also includes a special presentation from our host for the evening, world-renowned illusionist, Mark Mitton

BrainStorm is the focal point of Mind Science's longtime commitment to funding early-career researchers, teamed with senior primary investigators in powerful labs to work on pilot studies that will help them obtain grants for further research, while honing their skills in translating complex neuroscience for a general audience.

Mark Mitton, Emcee

Our special host for the evening will be Mr. Mark Mitton, a professional magician who is fascinated by using magic to better understand how we see the world.

In addition to performing at events all over the world and creating magic for film and stage productions, Mark explores the theme of "Misdirection" from an interdisciplinary standpoint. He regularly presents on "Perception" at universities and conferences in North America and Europe, including the Association for the Scientific Study of Consciousness, and has lectured with the late Nobel Laureate Dr. Gerald Edelman of The Neurosciences Institute.
