Science: Sebastian Seung: How the Brain's Wiring Makes Us Who We Are
Neuroscientist Sebastian Seung (Connectome) suggests our identities are not determined by our genes, but by the connections in our brains. From his position at the forefront of a neuroscience revolution, MIT Professor Seung shares how researchers are mapping these "connectome" connections our own particular wiring neuron by neuron, synapse by synapse, in a quest to uncover the basis of personality, identity, intelligence, memory, and perhaps disorders such as autism and schizophrenia. Presented as part of Seattle Science Lectures, with Pacific Science Center and University Book Store. Series sponsored by Microsoft. Series media sponsorship provided by KPLU.
