Science on Tap Oct. 11

Tuesday, October 10, 2017


Humans have always loved dangerous sports, from ancient chariot racing all the way to today’s football, soccer, and hockey. Despite safety equipment, the sight of a player being checked for a head injury has become increasingly common. Growing evidence indicates that multiple concussions and similar injuries to the head can accelerate certain forms of dementia and lead to chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).

Dr. Larry Sherman is a neuroscientist at OHSU, and his lab has been exploring how the brain responds to certain types of injury. He will explore the mechanisms underlying the brain’s responses to injury and possible ways to reverse brain damage.

Science on tap is Wednesday, Oct. 11, at Kiggins Theatre, 1011 Main St. in Vancouver. Tickets are $9 in advance, and $10 (suggested cover) at the door. Beer, wine, popcorn, pizza slices, and snacks are available for purchase.
