Dr. Rossbacher shares her experience of visiting Humboldt State's Library Brain Booth - where research and relaxation intersect. The Library Brain Booth, which began August 31st, allows visitors to utilize the biofeedback station, relaxation and contemplation station or virtual reality station. The effects of mindfulness, attention, and contemplation are measured through the various activities.
The Library Brain Booth is open on Wednesdays, 10am-Noon (Library 114) and Thursdays, 1-3pm (Library 208) through October 27, 2016. After October 27, hours will change to once weekly. High Brain Booth visitor numbers and interest will dictate if twice weekly labs will be offered through the entire fall semester. Learn more about the HSU Library Brain booth here.

"If we look at what makes up the universe, it's a little disturbing," Humboldt State University physicist CD Hoyle told the standing-room-only audience in Arcata. "It turns that most of the universe is dark energy." And we don't know what that is. "And that's a problem."
Physics has problems, and nature is hinting at mysteries as big as the universe itself. There are contradictions among major models of nature that are, in Hoyle's opinion, downright embarrassing.
