– Move Your Body, Change Your Brain. The monthly Science Pub will take place one week this month. Our wildly popular Science Pub Series has returned for a seventh incredible season! Enjoy lectures on scientific topics of general interest in our Arizona Room (main floor banquet room) over beer and snacks. The room opens at 5:00 PM and quite often is full by 6:00 PM. Avoid disappointment and come down early for dinner and a pint before the presentation which begins at 7:00 PM. This month’s lecture will be presented by Dr. Cameron Mang. Whether texting on a phone, swinging a golf club, or drinking a beer, movement allows humans to interact with the world around us. With relatively little effort, we learn new movement skills and adapt existing ones to specific situations every day. The complexity of our movements is only surpassed by that of the intricate and ever-changing brain networks that support it. The ability of the brain to change, or undergo neuroplasticity, is at the heart of our capacity to learn new movements and even recover movement skills lost due to brain damage. But sometimes our movement skills still leave something to be desired. So, what can we do to make the brain learn faster, learn more or recover quicker? How can we leverage a seemingly good system to work even better?

Before the Bushwakker opened in January 1991 we had already spent several years visiting others brewpubs and unique restaurants and North America, looking the best ideas for what was to be... THE BUSHWAKKER PHILOSOPHY
