Event description
Join CurePSP For a Magical Evening Cocktail Reception Where You Will Explore the World of Illusion, Neuroscience, and Technology!

About this Event

As humans, we experience a breathtaking world of color, tastes, and sounds each day. However, science tells us that, in reality, what we perceive is not always the case. Our impressions of the world and how the world really is can be based on illusions.

This fundraising cocktail reception on Thursday, March 26th will benefit the CurePSP-Mayo Clinic brain donation program, overseen by Mayo’s eminent pathologist, Dr. Dennis W. Dickson. The evening will be centered around the intersection of technology, neuroscience, and illusion.

  • Attire is smart or business casual.
  • Mobile bidding coming soon!
  • Opportunities to support this event can be found here.

About the Brain Donation Fund

The CurePSP-Mayo Clinic Brain Donation Program serves two important purposes:

  1. The first is that contributions to this fund allows CurePSP to reimburse families for the costs associated with the donation of patient brains, which, for many families, might be impossible without the program. These donations provide an autopsy-verified diagnosis to families, which often differs from the clinical diagnosis they have received.
  2. The second is that the brain donations serve as an invaluable resource to neuroscientists by providing tissue samples that are essential for much of their research. They are extremely important for developing future therapeutic interventions for neurodegenerative disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and others. Researchers from all over the world benefit from brain donations to the Mayo Clinic, which collaborates with many national and international scientists.
