Caveat, 21 A Clinton St., New York, NY


Memories of individual moments can allow us to travel into the past and imagine the future. Could they also be what make us human? Paula Croxson (Assistant Professor of Neuroscience at Mt. Sinai School of Medicine) digs deep into her research to hunt for clues, document crime scenes, and push forward the frontiers of science to find what makes episodic memory unique. This edition of Talks Progress Administration is performed by Paula Croxson and directed by Mark Kennedy-McClellan.

This event is 21+ and tickets cost $15. For more information, please visit the Caveat website.

Paula Croxson is a neuroscientist, musician and open water swimmer. She is an Assistant Professor at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, where she runs a lab researching how complex autobiographical life memories work – and how they fail. Paula received an M.A. from the University of Cambridge and a M.Sc. and a Ph.D. from the University of Oxford before moving to New York 7 years ago from the U.K. She is also the flautist in alternative rock band Marlowe Grey and nerdy rock band Pavlov’s Dogz. The swimming is apparently for “fun”.

Mark Kennedy-McClellan is an independent theatre creator/director/deviser and former Experience Consulting Creative Producer for Museum Hack in NYC. He is currently studying at University of the Arts in Philadelphia with Pig Iron Theatre Company’s Devised Performance MFA and lives in Port Richmond with his wife Colie and his dog Mia. Thrilled to be pursuing the ways storytelling and science catalyze since he never fulfilled his doctor father’s wishes to follow in his footsteps.

This event is part of Brain Awareness Week 2018.
