Omaha Science Cafe Event

On October 5th, the Omaha Science Café will look at the psychological differences between liberals and conservatives.



John Hibbing, Ph.D., a University of Nebraska-Lincoln Foundation Regents University Professor of political science, will speak from 7 to 8 p.m. at the Slowdown located at 729 N. 14th St. Last year Dr. Hibbing was featured on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.”

His work uses economic games, functional magnetic resonance imaging, evolutionary theory and behavioral genetics to identify the deeper biological causes of social, and especially political behavior. He has been a NATO fellow in a science and senior Fulbright fellow and has received six National Science Foundation grants.

Science Cafe is a free educational event sponsored by UNMC and other groups to increase the population’s science literacy. Hosted by UNMC, BioNebraska and the Nebraska Coalition for Lifesaving Cures, Science Cafes are held the first Tuesday of each month in Omaha and one Thursday every other month in Lincoln.
