DC Science Cafe: “Curious Behavior! Yawing, Laughing, Hiccupping and Beyond” with Author Robert Provine at Busboys and Poets 5th & K
Tuesday, May 21st
6:30pm - 8:30pm

DC Science Cafe presents a talk with Robert Provine a scientist, teacher, and consummate communicator, and author of "Curious Behavior! Yawning, Laughing, Hiccupping and Beyond." He'll lead a discussion that is sure to be as memorable as it is revealing about what makes you you. His book will be available for purchase at Busboys and Poets Books.

"Neuroscientist Robert Provine boldly goes where other scientists seldom tread—in search of yawns, laughs, hiccups, coughs, sneezes, and other lowly, undignified human behaviors. His investigations, which he describes as “sidewalk neuroscience” to stress his reliance on simple observations of daily life, reveal how these instinctive acts bear the imprint of our evolutionary origins and can be uniquely valuable tools for understanding how the human brain works. His latest award-winning book, from which the title of this café event was stolen, has been receiving rave reviews."
