Start you week off with an Improbable Research Table Talk –ice cream and science in the morning

This week:

“The Neural Bases of Disgust for Cheese: An fMRI Study.”   Marc Abrahams and Gus Rancatore.   Toscanini’s Ice Cream, 159 First St., Cambridge.

A newish activity from the people behind the IgNobel Prizes, which are announced each September at a raucous, funny, one-of-a-kind ceremony. 

Coming up

At each Improbable Research Table Talk, Marc Abrahams(editor of the Annals of Improbable Research, and founder of the Ig Nobel Prize ceremony) will chat with you about one or another research study that makes people laugh, then think. Some of these studies have won Ig Nobel Prizes; others we have explored in the magazine, in the podcast, etc.

These chats will be cozy, informal, and brief, around a table. Sometimes Marc will bring along a professor, physician, engineer, or other famous or infamous researcher.

Please join us! Bring friends, and maybe meet some new friends
