AOF Activities & Events
People still think strange things. Sometimes the things have names. Our speaker will open your eyes to the peculiarities of these weird and often regretably moist syndromes. Join us for a talk on the wild side by our favorite dissector of shipwrecked minds: psychiatrist Michael Caton, whose fascination with delusions has led him behind mental hedges and down rust-stained synaptic stairwells to explore some jaw-dropingly false beliefs, fallacies, social signaling, the evolution of thought, and the eerie connects between language, belief, truth and authority. The info may weird you out. But someday, sadly, you may need it.
Mike grew up outside Philadelphia. After developing cardiac and cancer medications in the Bay Area, Mike attended medical school at UC San Diego and served his residency in psychiatry at UC Davis. His research interests are delusions and neuroimaging. He now sees patients in Santa Rosa. In addition to psychiatry, Mike enjoys trail running, blogging, linguistics, and travel. He has a wife and child who keep him honest and mostly non-delusional.
