Science and music are set to take your brain into an environment ideal for its neural circuitry hitting new notes, and nematodes! Deeply woven in his DNA, saxophonist and clarinetist extraordinaire Victor Goines expresses his New Orleans roots lacing every scale with unrelenting melody with his superb jazz quartet. The night’s showcase will also stimulate your brain’s cells between performances with Salk’s neurobiologist Sreekanth Chalasani sharing the latest studies on genes, neurons and neural circuitry in whole animals. Stimulation is guaranteed, how one behaves to it is all in one’s head.
