Neuroscience talk, tonight at 7:30

3/5/2012: Should be good, more here:

Eagleman asks, “If the conscious mind—the part you consider you—accounts for only a fraction of the brain’s function, what is all the rest doing?” Eagleman has spent years researching this question, and has uncovered some startling new answers. He will show how our behavior, thoughts, and experiences are inextricably linked to a vast, wet, chemical-electrical network known as our nervous system, and take us on a journey into our subconscious minds. Eagleman charts new territory in neuroscience, and helps us understand how our perceptions of ourselves and our world result from the hidden workings of the human brain—a wondrously complex organ humorously described by Eagleman as “a team of rivals.”

David Eaglemanwill explore these and other questions in his Robert D. Clark Lecture in the Humanities, “The Secret Lives of the Human Brain,” onTuesday, March 5, 2013 at 7:30 p.m. in 182 Lillis Hall (955 E. 13th Ave.) on the UO campus.
