Neuroscience Lab Day: thermal thresholds

The mystery of how we sense heat and cold was solved because some researchers at UCSF, led by David Julius, were curious about how chili peppers work. This Thursday, we will be performing a corollary of their experiments on ourselves, and learning first-hand how our skin senses temperature.

Open to the public, starting at 8pm.
