The Big Bang Theory: Making Science Cool (& Funny)

An acclaimed actress who became a neuroscientist is now an actress who on TV plays a neuroscientist. If you follow this logic, then you are probably a fan of one of the most popular comedies on television, The Big Bang Theory. Playing the role of "Amy Farrah Fowler," Mayim Bialik uses her PhD as the foundation for her unforgettable character. In her presentations, she shares her keen scientific mind and her wonderful sense of humor as she explores the work of the brain, of behavioral development, of her life as an actress and scientist, and of the special relationship that exists between The Big Bang Theory and its audience.

The Art & Science of Caregiving

Having to act as a caregiver for her aging grandparents—from her teens through college and into her graduate school years—Mayim Bialik developed personal insight alongside her academic and neurological/neuropsychiatric training, leading to a complicated but rich understanding of the biological, psychological, and personal impacts of the aging process. Covering such issues as dementia, brain injury, and managing general degenerative processes in a nursing facility, Bialik offers a fascinating journey into both the science of the brain and the emotional issues affecting caregivers.
