Omaha Science Cafe returns tonight

Jan 14, 2014

The science of brain surgery is the focus of the Omaha Science Café tonight.

Dr. Michelle Aizenberg, assistant professor of neurosurgery and oncology at UNMC, is the guest speaker. She says brain surgery is a huge topic with many sub-specialties. 

Dr. Aizenberg says at the Science Café she will give people an insight into how brain surgeons do their work.

"A lot of people don’t understand how we are able to operate on the brain and find it to be fascinating.  So I am going to review for them some basic anatomy and show them some of the tools we have so that we can figure out where we are, what we are doing and how we can safely do what we need to do when we are working in and around the brain.”

The Omaha Science Café takes place tonight at 7:00 p.m. in the Slowdown, 729 N. 14th Street.  There is no fee to attend.
