Heartbreakers: Of Mice and Men

Thursday, May 11, 2017

Dessa, The Greene Space's Artist-in-Residence, launches her four-part "Heartbreakers" series (Screen shot)

Could our genes affect our romantic choices? Does love inhabit a particular region of the brain? If this song makes us too sad to drive straight, why are we playing it on repeat?

Join us via live video stream as rapper and essayist Dessa launches her event series - a collision of art, music and scientific research on love, sex and human adventures in pair-bonding.

She begins with an exploration of how research on voles might reveal a genetic basis for monogamy in humans, and how booze affects it. Featuring behavioral neuroscientist Allison Anacker, house musician Jon Bernstein and special guest, singer-songwriter jeremy messersmith
