“The Neuroscience of Zombies”

Kaitlyn Casimo, Graduate Program in Neuroscience at University of Washington

Zombies are people too…or they were, at least. Whether they shamble, sprint, or just decompose, zombies are everywhere, and they’re out to eat human flesh. What is it about the undead plague that causes the distinctive and irreversible transformation from friendly neighbor to mindless cannibal? Come learn about neuroanatomy and what these parts of your brain normally do, how common symptoms of zombie infection originate in brain damage to specific areas, and the real-life science of neural regeneration and degenerative disease.
