Shaping the Brain Through Taste
with Dr. Angela Dietsch, Assistant Professor and Ross Westemeyer, Doctoral Student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Could your sense of taste help re-wire your brain to recover from neural injury? The 88 million Americans diagnosed with dysphagia or swallowing problems, certainly hope so. Join us to learn how taste perception may influence swallowing movements and brain activity, and how it might boost recovery when swallowing goes wrong.

The Mammoth in Our Closet
with Kate Lyons, Assistant Professor, UNL School of Biological Sciences

As recently as 14,000 years ago, North America had a mammalian fauna that was richer than that of present day Africa and included megamammals such as mammoths, mastodons, lions, cheetah, giant ground sloths, giant camels, saber tooth cats, short-faced bears, giant armadillos, giant beavers, and more. Come and learn about this lost world and why they are no longer with us.
