Ars Electronica Center
Thursday Evening at the Ars Electronica Center
(Linz, June 29, 2015) A broad programmatic arc—from brain research to astronomy—will be spanned at the Ars Electronica Center this coming Thursday, July 2nd. In the next installment of Brains for All at 6:30 PM, Dr. Manuela Macedonia will talk about which of the brain’s structures, networks and messenger substances (semiochemicals) are responsible for feelings of happiness and why people are driven to seek them their whole life long. And at 8 PM in the final Deep Space LIVE before summer break, Ars Electronica Center infotrainer Birgit Hartinger will focus on various comets, asteroids and dwarf planets, and show why research on these heavenly bodies is so important for our understanding of our own solar system.
