Explorer Café Series: "What Makes Us Human?" -- The Animal Connection

Science Conversation event
Wednesday, April 20, 3:00pm
Holroyd Science Center Atrium, La Salle University
1900 W. Olney Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19141


This is the first in a two-part Explorer Café series that explores the question of “What Makes Us Human?” Chimpanzees share nearly 99 percent of human DNA. But how do we compare mentally? Discuss the ways that emerging research is finally helping us answer one of the biggest questions in science: what makes us uniquely human? This program will be team facilitated by Dr. Joel Garver, Assistant Professor of Philosophy at La Salle University, Dr. Alexander Skolnick, Assistant Professor of Psychology at Saint Joseph University, and Dr. Gerald Ballough, Biology professor and Neuroscience expert at La Salle University.

Free food and open to the public.

The Explorer Café is brought to you by The Explorer Connection of La Salle University. Cafés are held every Wednesday at 3:00pm in the Holroyd Science Center Atrium. Download a complete schedule of the Spring 2011 Explorer Cafés here.
