The comic-book convention nerds do a 180 and ride their scooters back into the city for the World Science Festival, which will include a wild night at “The Brain and Bourne” at MoMA, featuring a screening of the Matt Damon spy flick The Bourne Identity followed by a discussion with director Doug Liman and psychiatrist and neuroscientist Giulio Tononi about brain function, memory and personality (i.e., do government-trained top-secret international assassins really suffer occasional memory lapses after failing to assassinate dictators on their yachts?).

[“The Brian and Bourne,” The Museum of Modern Art, Roy and Niuta Titus Theater 1, 11 West 53rd Street, 5 p.m., http://www.worldsciencefestival.org]
