Mario Galarreta is a neuroscientist,
a physician, a filmmaker and a mindfulness teacher. After almost 20 years
studying the brain, Mario joined Google in 2009, where he worked as a video
production manager and led Search Inside Yourself (a mindfulness-based
emotional intelligence program). Before Google, Mario was a Senior Research
Scientist at Stanford University School of Medicine where he studied the
physiology of cortical inhibitory circuits and discovered the existence of gap
junctions (electrical synapses) between GABAergic interneurons. Previously,
Mario did a post-doc in Shaul Hestrin's lab at the University of Tennessee,
Memphis. Mario was born in Logroño (Spain) and holds an M.D. (Neurology), a
Ph.D. (Ramón y Cajal Hospital, Madrid) and an MFA in Cinema (San Francisco State
University). He lives in San Francisco (California) since 2000.

In this talk, Mario will guide us
through his trans-disciplinary professional journey, showing us that
disciplines that may seem very far from each other, can be more connected than
what one can imagine at a first glance.
