When you gotta go, you gotta go. And when you gotta breathe, you gotta breathe. But did you know they’re related? And that training can help you gain control over these two basic bodily actions? Join us at the next UConn Science Salon as we explore the surprising connections between breathing, peeing, blinking, and other physical functions that we don’t often talk about—because they usually happen without thinking. We’ll have a panel of experts explain why and how things go wrong, and how we might retrain them to go right. Don’t blink, or you’ll miss it! Join us on Wednesday, January 22, where $15 gets you a drink, food, and two hours of spirited science discourse.
