Lee and Nile Albright Annual Symposium –
Our (Super)human Brains

If you could experience someone else’s feelings, imagine what you could do with that superpower. If you could get your body to metabolize dessert as if it were a diet food, think of how you could exercise that superpower. Treat yourself to an unusual excursion into the world of a doctor who uses his (super)synesthetic brain to treat patients, and learn about the secrets of your own (super)human brain. Book signing to follow.

Funding provided by the Lee and Nile Albright Annual Symposium Fund. This program is free thanks to the generosity of the Lowell Institute.
