A lecture with Sharon Faith Collins. Michelangelo was an Italian sculptor, painter, architect and poet of the High Renaissance born in the Republic of Florence, who exerted an unparalleled influence on the development of Western art. Considered by many the greatest artist of his lifetime and by some the greatest artist of all time, his artistic versatility was of such a high order that he is often considered a contender for the title of the archetypal Renaissance man. Please join us for this informative lecture.

The human brain has the same general structure as the brains of other mammals, but has a more developed cortex than any other. The human brain is almost twice as large as the brain of the bottlenose dolphin, and three times as large as the brain of a chimpanzee. The average human brain has shown to have about 86 billion neurons and 125 trillion synapses in the cerebral cortex alone. We understand less than 20% of brain function.
Join us for this incredible lecture about the human brain!
