Neuroscience-y and brainy types are popular — especially when they can write and speak like best-selling author Jonah Lehrer.
The OHSU Brain Institute has expanded seating for Lehrer’s lecture tonight at the Oregon Convention Center because of demand for tickets.
More tickets are now available here.
Lehrer’s new book, “Imagine: How Creativity Works,” this week hit number one on the New York Times’ best seller list for non-fiction. The book explores the neuroscience of how we can actually learn to be more creative. He shows that creativity is not a mystical trait that some people just possess, but that anyone take practical steps to become more creative.
Lehrer is a contributing editor at Wired, a frequent contributor to The New Yorker and writes the Head Case column for the Wall Street Journal. His lecture will be at 7 p.m. at the convention center, at 777 N.E. Martin Luther King Blvd.
