She's an actor, and a neuroscientist in real life and in fiction in her role on the hit CBS comedy The Big Bang Theory. For her Ph.D. dissertation at UCLA, Bialik focused on malfunctions of the hypothalamus, and she has applied her insights from studying the biology of the brain to the stage, to her faith, to marriage, and to her style of parenting. What is it like to be a woman in Hollywood and in science, at the same time? How does she combine her many interests and disciplines? Bialik visits Zócalo to discuss acting, the frontiers of brain research, and the role of women in science.
