The Science of Illusions

Who:

Cedar Riener          bio

   
 

Dr. Riener is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, VA.  Dr. Riener’s professional interests span both basic and applied research. His basic research investigates how the state of our body influences how we perceive the spatial layout of the natural world. One of his studies found that hills appear steeper when we are sad. His applied research seeks to apply findings in cognitive science to education. He has recently published and presented on the myth of learning styles. He earned his Ph.D. in cognitive psychology from the University of Virginia.

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.
