This event is a free "3 in 30" event done as part of the MSU Science Festival Cafe and Pub Series.
Three MSU neuroscientists from the College of Communication Arts and Sciences will share their ongoing work into how neuroscience can help us improve the effectiveness of our communication efforts.
Topics addressed will include how neuroimaging can help us understand what happens when media captivate our attention, what neuroscience tells us about the effects of social media, and what is going on in peoples' brains when we hear others speak.
The talks will be informal and geared toward anyone with an interest in learning how communication works and how we can do it better.
The three presenters will be ...

Amanda Hampton Wray , Assistant Professor , Communicative Sciences & Disorders , MSU
