Unlocking Autism        


Autism is a behavioral diagnosis with no known causes or cure. It is defined primarily by deficits in language skills as well as social deficits. Today’s cutting-edge interventions target those skills and have led to uncomfortable questions about the nature of self and consciousness.

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.

   
     
5:30 pm   Doors Open for sociable sipping & such

Organizer

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.
