Your Brain on Pleasure and In Love: A Discussion and Concert

Listening to beautiful music, falling in love and eating really good chocolate create intense feelings of pleasure – but why? At this special musical Science on Tap, OHSU neuroscientist Larry Sherman, Ph.D. will be joined by singer, songwriter and pianist Naomi LaViolette to present a fascinating multi-media discussion and concert on how the brain experiences pleasure. Diving into exciting new research – including what happens to the brain when love goes awry – and what we can learn from the monogamous prairie vole, Dr. Sherman mixes music, humor and neuroscience for an unforgettable, educational evening.
