Discover what it’s like to be a neuroscientist. Join Danielle Giangrasso to explore the neuroscience of addiction. Learn how we model human addiction in rats and see how addiction changes the way your brain cells communicate with each other. You'll even have an opportunity to try your hand at controlling neurotransmission.

Scientist in the Spotlight is held on the first and third Friday of each month from 2–4 p.m. The program allows Museum guests to meet real scientists and discuss their research. See link below for additional scientists in the series.


Included in Museum admission, free to members and University of Utah faculty, staff, and students with a current U ID.
