SEMINAR PROFILE

S02 - 
The Amazing Brain
   
  What makes us human and unique among all creatures is our brain. Consciousness, perception, emotion, memory, learning, language, and intelligence all originate in and depend on the brain. Over the past century, our understanding has raced forward to reveal many of the mechanisms by which the brain creates mind and consciousness. The first half of this seminar will provide the nuts and bolts necessary for an up-to-date understanding of the brain. The remainder of the discussion will examine aspects of brain function-vision, perception, language, memory, emotion, and consciousness-that are more directly relevant to how the brain creates the mind.
