Dr. Steve Schlozman will use movie clips, passages from literature, scientific and psychological research, and stories about creators in the horror genre to explore why we respond to horror in the way we do. He’ll also discuss what it’s like to be a horror writer while maintaining a professional identity as a proper physician. Presented by NOVA’s CafeSci Boston at the WGBH-Boston Public Library Studio.
