Many CARA members met Josh Kornbluth at our 2019 Convention in Sacramento, where he shared some of the videos that he developed while interning with the UCSF Global Brain Institute. Josh performs autobiographical monologues around the world, and has recently completed his latest monologue, called Citizen Brain, based on his work at UCSF.
Josh Kornbluth began his fellowship at the Global Brain Institute just as Donald Trump was being inaugurated in 2016. While there, he drew a connection between dementia and the collective breakdown in communication across the political divide. At the same time, UCSF discovered a circuit in the brain, an empathy circuit. You can learn about this circuit through a funny, smart performance of Citizen Brain by Josh Kornbluth.
