Learning in your sleep at Liverpool Sci Bar

Liverpool Sci Bar

The next SciBar is on learning in your sleep.  What does the brain do when we are asleep?  You may think it just switches off, but scientists know that this is far from the case. Dr Penny Lewis from the University of Manchester will talk about the complex patterns of brain activity that make up a night of sleep, and explore the mysterious question of what sleep could possibly be for.

 

 

Remember there's no such thing as a silly question at SciBar!

What you didn't come along! Well you really missed out on a cool weekend of open source technology and open source thinking - if you don't know what that is then you should have come along for sure. But at least you can catch Stephen Fry talking to the huge crowd who were there. 

Liverpool's monthly Social Media Cafe has announced that it is going to be having eight speakers at it's event next week, with a real range of subjects that has something to suit everyone. 

With talks on web security, Local TV, blogging about food and digitally engaging older people what more could you want, it's a real range of diverse talks and from what I hear they are expecting more. Plus it's all for FREE because they love you so much. 

So head down to Static Gallery on Roscoe Street, next Thursday from 6pm.
