MITCNC Event
Oxytocin: The Science Behind the Most Sensationalized Hormone
May 27 - Virtual Event

We're hosting these events in partnership with Speakeasy, an early-stage startup offering intimate, online events with fascinating speakers and performers. Their vision is to bring the vibrancy of a university campus to people everywhere.

Oxytocin has been called the love hormone, the hug hormone, and the cuddle hormone, but just what is oxytocin, and what does it do to us? Join Dr. Randi Hutter Epstein on a journey deep into the brain as she unravels the fascinating science of oxytocin. We'll learn about how the hormone is tied to social behaviors, lactation, and childbirth, and we'll distinguish real scientific discoveries from hoaxes. With Randi as our guide, we'll travel back in time to meet brilliant (but eccentic) investigators, conniving hucksters, and a few oxytocin-bonded loving mountain moles.

We're offering a limited number of tickets for this event so that everyone who attends can ask questions and engage in the discussion if they'd like. We hope to create an intimate vibe, as if we're all together in someone's living room, so we'd ask that you keep your video camera on throughout the event.

Entrance into the event is on a first come, first serve basis. Once we hit capacity, we will not be able to allow additional people into the event. Please plan accordingly.
