TedX Talk: Michael Weisend, Ph.D.

What would it be worth to increase your ability to learn or concentrate with the flick of a switch? Neuroscientist Michael Weisend, Ph.D., will discuss how the most advanced techniques in his field have been used to enhance both learning and concentration with non-invasive brain stimulation at Antioch College on Tuesday, January 14 at 3:30 p.m. in McGregor Hall, room #113.

Electrical and magnetic brain stimulation are currently being used every day to treat patients with brain disorders ranging from depression and epilepsy to Parkinson's disease. Weisend’s work focuses on the use of non-invasive brain stimulation in persons with healthy brains. He and his team designed a neuroimaging-guided, non-invasive brain stimulation paradigm from first principles to enhance learning in health controls in militarily relevant tasks as part of an effort funded by DARPA. His presentation will describe the technological developments and brain stimulation procedures that have lead to enhanced learning—in some cases a doubling of the learning rate—in healthy control subjects.

This event is free and open to the public.

LOCATION: McGregor Hall, room 113

Cracking the Codes: The System of Racial Inequity film screening

Cracking the Codes is a film that asks us to talk about the causes and consequences of racial inequity in the US. "More than any other demographic factor, race determines the levels of individual educational achievement, health and life expectancy, possibility of incarceration, and wealth. This film reveals a self-perpetuating system of inequity in which internal factors play out in external structures: institutions, policy and law. Designed for dialogue and learning, this film works to disentangle internal beliefs within, as it builds skills to recognize and address the external drivers of inequity." Join the Introduction to Intercultural Engagement class for a facilitated viewing, reflection and discussion on this film! All are welcome! (This film is not rated)

LOCATION: McGregor 113

Gabrielle Civil performs Aide Memoire

On Thursday, January 9 at 7:00 p.m at the Herndon Gallery, Gabrielle Civil, Antioch College’s associate professor of performance, will present Aide-Mémoire,  a new performance art work which premiered in November at the AFiRiPerFOMA Biennial in Harare, Zimbabwe.  This festival was the first ever all contemporary performance/ live art festival on the African continent. 

Incorporating objects, music and movement, Aide-Mémoire playfully explores the creation and exchange of memory. In real time, the artist will erect her own diaspora memory theater, conduct photo-memory experiments, and inaugurate a memory gift economy with the audience.  Inspired by classical method of loci, tourist souvenirs, Nuruddin Farah’s novel Gifts, selfies and déjà vu, the work becomes a form of new jack memory diplomacy, a “non-paper” manifestation of mnemonics from flesh to camera flash.

The performance is free and open to the public.  For more information, please contact Dennie Eagleson, gallery director, at or call 937 768 6462.
