If you’re looking for a fun science fix this weekend, consider learning how flies help teach us about the brain at the Bell House in Brooklyn on Sunday evening. The Secret Science Club will be screening short films from Imagine Science Films and you’ll be treated to a lecture by neuroscientist Josh Dubnau, Ph.D., on how he uses Drosophila (a tiny fruit fly) to study memory. And did I mention it’s free?
