What does it mean to ‘not have language’? Do people really ‘think in pictures’? Is it possible to ‘turn on/induce’ that inner voice and is that what a ‘cure’ for autism will look like? Join Adam Dreyfus for a discussion on language, our experience of self and the mystery of autism.

When & Where
Science Pub RVA
Science Pub RVA connects curious citizens and creative scientists over a sip of some sort at informal gatherings in non-academic settings.
What to expect A short, jargon-free presentation by a local scientific thinker and a slightly longer period dedicated to questions and dialogue among the attendees and with a local scientist.
What to bring No background in science is needed. A smidge of curiosity is all it takes to enjoy a fun and engaging time. Pub is in our name, but sipping a glass of water at these events is completely copacetic.
