J. Nicholas Betley Assistant Professor of Biology
Penn Science Cafe | Location: Suzanne Roberts Theater, 2nd Floor Lobby, 480 South Broad Street, Philadelphia
Description:

Neuroscientist J. Nicholas Betley has studied how forces key to survival—like the drive to eat and drink—affect neurons in the brain. In this talk, Betley will share what his research tells us about how hunger, food, and even certain drugs can change the activity of brain neurons known to influence feeding, and how that knowledge may be exploited to address obesity, eating disorders, and encourage healthy eating.

Mitchell Orenstein Professor of Russian and East European Studies
Knowledge by the Slice | Location: Cafe 58, Irvine Auditorium, 3420 Spruce Street, Philadelphia
Description:

Russia and the West are locked in a fierce struggle.  Why?  And what effect is it having on our politics?  Professor Orenstein will answer these questions and discuss how Russia’s hybrid war on the West is affecting not only the U.S., but many other European countries, some of whom have been dealing with it for longer.  A look at the problems they have suffered provides important insight into and context for understanding our own problems.
