TED Tuesdays at The Globe
Globe Bar Cafe

Every Tuesday we show 3 TED Talks on our wall sized screen organized around a common theme.

This weeks theme: The Mind

Gero Miesenboeck reengineers a brain In the quest to map the brain, many scientists have attempted the incredibly daunting task of recording the activity of each neuron. Gero Miesenboeck works backward -- manipulating specific neurons to figure out exactly what they do, through a series of stunning experiments that reengineer the way fruit flies perceive light.

Dan Gilbert asks, Why are we happy? Harvard psychologist Dan Gilbert says our beliefs about what will make us happy are often wrong -- a premise he supports with intriguing research, and explains in his accessible and unexpectedly engaging talk.

VS Ramachandran on your mind Vilayanur Ramachandran tells us what brain damage can reveal about the connection between celebral tissue and the mind, using three startling delusions as examples.

A Spark Weekend is an opportunity to improve your life in a fun, friendly environment.

  • Day 1 is about learning. Our speakers share their favorite lifestyle change tools and techniques in 20 minute sessions.

  • Day 2 Our mentors coach you to implement what you learned the day before. You come back with your laptop and directly work on your goals.

It’s not over when you leave!

  • Day 30 is about winning. You get $30 cash back if you reach your goals; more if you put your own money on the line.

And in the spirit of open science, we publish our results in helping you change.
