There’s neuroscience, and then there’s Brian Smith’s version of neuroscience. As a professor at Arizona State University Brain is leading research on how our brains learn about odors in order to predict important events…Like how to find food, attract a mate, or even defend ourselves. He and his research team also use a combination of electrophysiological, bioimaging, molecular and computational techniques to directly link changes in behavior to changes in the brain. Smith’s research focuses on learning and memory in both insects and mammals. He’s even working on smell for Virtual Reality. We are excited to hear about the work Brian is doing at this year’s Think Big Festival.
