About 20% of all people experience tinnitus (ringing in the ears), but only a fraction of those with tinnitus find it severely bothersome. With a variety of reasons that this phantom sound occurs, it can be difficult to know where to go for help or what to do about it. Join us for a discussion of how your ears and brain talk to each other, with a focus on how we currently can--and perhaps more importantly, cannot--measure the presence of tinnitus. Ring! Ring! will happen on Friday, Feb 8, at 7pm in the Mt. Vernon Homeslyce. Check out our Facebook event page while you're at it.
Join us for a charming evening of stories from Maryland’s science community! On Wednesday, February 13th at 7 pm, De Kleine Duivel will host the next Science Slam, brought to you by Project Bridge and BUGSS. Come hear local scientists (grad students, post docs, citizen scientists, etc.) give short presentations about their research and compete for prizes. We’ve had all sorts of fun and diverse subjects at past slams, everything from machine learning to magic mushrooms to horseshoe crabs!
Do you have a cool, crazy science story to tell? If you’re game, we’re currently in search of speakers; we can even help you develop your talk! There will be a communication workshop about a week before the Slam for people to practice their presentations. Please email email@example.com to sign up as a presenter, and see our Eventbrite page or our Facebook page for more details. Hope to see you there!
