Nate Hershkowitz speaks enthusiastically as he describes his typical day at The Evil Genius Group, a marketing company for small businesses and high-profile individuals in New York. “It’s always flying here,” he says. “Everyone has so much to do. But at the same time, it’s really chilled.” He gestures around the office, a WeWork space housed in the Upper East Side: In the “living room area,” as he describes it, one employee sits comfortably on a yellow couch, his laptop on his knees, while another sits on one of the barstools in the “kitchen.” The interior décor is modern chic: a collage of cool, colorful furniture, geometric wallpaper, and contrasting, bright textures. One room’s walls are covered entirely in whiteboards. Another hallway is covered in pastel-colored drawings and motivational quotes.

The Psychology Club welcomed Avi Golden to speak about Aphasia, a disorder in the part of the brain that controls language. In 2007 the then-33-year-old Golden suffered a stroke that left him unable to speak. Through a rigorous schedule of rehabilitation—including six hours in speech therapy every day—Golden regained the ability to speak, though with great difficulty and several limitations. For instance, Golden cannot remember names, at least as they pertain to speech itself. That is, other than members of his immediate family, if he sees someone, even a close friend, he can’t say their names. The information is still in his brain but trapped in the pathways between his memory and his ability to speak, so he could still write the name down on a piece of paper and then read it aloud. About 40 guys came to hear Golden, who still enjoys snowboarding and horseback riding as he did before the stroke,  talk about his condition and recovery.
