Joseph Henry Room, Jadwin Hall
A free lecture open to the public.

In physics and engineering dimensionless numbers frequently help to characterize the state of a system. I will present a series of vignettes about unusually large dimensionless numbers that arise in brain science. These can indicate issues that are poorly understood, and in some cases clearly misunderstood.
