Are you curious about how things work? Are you interested in biology, physics and maths? Do you like beer? Are you interested in science? Then this is the place for you. Join us for Pint of Science (PoS) talks, where your curiosity is our motivation. We bring researchers to your local pub/cafe to talk about the latest advances in knowledge.  The PoS talks will take place in Nuremberg on the 23th May at The King's Arms  and the 24th May at the Dartmoor Inn Pub in Erlangen.

Instrumenteller Substanzkonsum - Warum und wie wir Drogen konsumieren

Starting at 6PM
Are you curious about the widespread behavior of non-addictive drug use? Here we will present a neurobiologically based framework for understanding the non-addictive consumption of psychoactive drugs. You'll learn how and why psychoactive drugs are targeted for their effects on mental states and how people are able to purposefully alter their mental states to facilitate other, non-drug-related behaviors. We'll discuss specific goals such as stress management and partner search, and describe the neurobiological mechanisms behind them.

Science LLC (GmbH in Germany), how we have strayed away from doing science

Starting at 7 PM
Have you ever wondered how modern science operates and what it means for the next generation of scientists? As the scientific landscape continues to evolve, it's important for newcomers to graduate education to be prepared for an uncertain future. This includes developing leadership skills and learning how to connect, understand, and respond to leadership within the scientific community. Join us for an upcoming discussion that explores these critical topics and provides insights on how to succeed as a scientist in today's rapidly-changing world.

Small but Mighty: Unraveling the Mechanics of Capillaries and Vasculogenesis

Starting at 8PM
Capillaries, the smallest blood vessels in the body, are crucial for delivering oxygen and nutrients to tissues. In this talk, we'll explore how these tiny vessels form through vasculogenesis and the fascinating interaction between endothelial cells and the extracellular matrix. We'll also discuss the complex fluid dynamics that occur within capillaries and their role in conditions such as acute pulmonary embolism. Don't miss this chance to learn more about the critical importance of capillaries to your health!

The science behind penalty shootouts: Using eye tracking and machine learning to measure stress in soccer

Starting at 9PM
England has suffered several agonizing defeats in penalty shootouts in history. In this context, the amount of pressure a player feels during the penalty kick significantly influences his success. However, no method exists to measure stress in individual game situations objectively. Effectively training for this anxiety-provoking and often match-deciding situations, therefore, remains a challenge. We use machine learning to differentiate penalties under and without stress. Will England be able to overcome its trauma in the future?
