HEALTH AND YOUR BRAIN

Why does physical health impact brain function? How does the mind influence the health of the body? Is stress always bad? New findings by Duke researchers reveal sometimes counterintuitive relationships between physical and mental well-being. This interactive session led by a team of faculty and students from the Duke Institute for Brain Sciences explores the connections between body, brain, and mind, and how these findings may transform medicine, psychology, law, ethics, and public policy.

Speakers:

JAZZ INFORMANCES

What does it mean to have a “jam” session? How do musicians know instinctively when to change the rhythm, the chord, and the pitch? Sit in with undergraduate student musicians led by John Brown, director of the Duke Jazz program, as they demonstrate the answers by bringing music theory spontaneously to life.

Speaker & Participants:

BASS CONNECTIONS IN ENERGY: THE UNIVERSITY AS AN ENERGY LABORATORY

Do you find it hard to make sense of your energy bills? Instead of just a monthly electricity bill, what if it could be broken down by appliance? A Bass Connections project team reveals some illuminating insights based on data they are collecting from buildings across Duke’s campus to determine if smart meters, coupled with advanced data analysis, can help individuals and organizations make better decisions about energy usage.
