Professor Katz is the 2012 winner of the Brandeis University Lerman-Neubauer '69 Prize for Excellence in Teaching and Mentoring. The prize requires its recipient to be not only an exceptional teacher, but also a person who is a presence in the co-curricular and extracurricular life of students and who is known to be an exceptional mentor and advisor.

The learned and lively Dr. Katz will discuss how our brains combine this welter of information such that most of us end up liking sweets, some of us end up liking beer, and all of our tastes are subject to change.
