Immerse yourself in cerebral science this week as NightLife gets inside your head.

In the planetarium, join a guided meditation led by neuroscience guru Dr. Philippe Goldin of Stanford University and get a closer perspective on human brains (even your own!) with a special fulldome audiovisual presentation at 6:30, 7:30 and 8:30 pm.

And because NightLife knows that music feeds the mind, catch a special set by turntable master and hip hop pioneer DJ Qbert. Hailed as one of the most prolific DJs of all time, DJ Qbert’s Extraterrestria (Thud Rumble), his first album release in 17 years, transcends the boundaries of turntablism and features the likes of Kool Keith and Chad Hugo (N.E.R.D.), among others.

In African Hall, get your zen on with a yoga workshop taught by Integral Yoga Institute and pick up tips on the therapeutic benefits of holistic nutrition with tea tastings hosted by Bauman College.

Plus, hear medicinal plant expert Tellur Fenner discuss edible and medicinal plants found along the California Coast and what their healing powers mean for us.

Use your brain to power the sights and sounds of NeuroDisco, a mind-controlled music, light and sculpture installation.
