On September 11, 2017, Dr. Skirmantas Janusonis presented at the SBMNH Science Pub:

Perceiving in a Net: Serotonin, Randomness, and this Planet's Brains

All brains on this planet are filled with dense, meandering fibers that release serotonin, a simple molecule with profound effects on neural processes. The behavior of these fibers continues to surprise us and leads to the origins of nervous systems, blood, and advanced mathematics. Join Dr. Janusonis for a discussion about new findings in his and other laboratories and why serotonin can change the way we perceive the brain itself.
