Science Cafes are a regular conversation series, aiming to break down the barriers between academia and the general public. Science Cafes democratize science, taking it out of the domain of the expert and allowing everyone to voice an opinion. It pulls science away from its usual habitats of the classroom and the laboratory, and into cafes, bars, restaurants, even theatres, demystifying new developments and opening them up for public debate. Join the Science North staff and various members of the local community in this regular event, to listen, learn and share.More Info
Addiction to technology is a growing issue as it infiltrates every point of our lives. We now play hyper-realistic video games, we invest and foster our relationships through social media, and we are expected to be in touch through mobile devices at all times. But when using technology becomes compulsive and interferes with daily life, can we diagnose this as an addiction? E-addiction, like other addictions can cause neurological complications, psychological disturbances, and social problems. How is technology designed to promote prolonged engagement? How does our brain react to technology? Is e-addiction a symptom of other disorders such as anxiety or depression? How do we treat this new and evolving disorder?
