Author Robert Burton, M.D., the former chief of neurology at Mt. Zion, UCSF discusses his new book A Skeptic's Guide to the Mind: What Neuroscience Can and Cannot Tell Us About Ourselves with Tucker Hiatt of Wonderfest. Burton delves into the fascinating question of what really makes us tick, as he reports on his deep exploration into the mysteries of the brain and consciousness. He also discusses the latest advancements in the field, which have led some to the alarming conclusion that nature, not nurture, is at the root of all behavior. He's expected to lay out his own theories, as he does in the book, through an engaging mix of clinical observations, thought experiments and personal anecdotes. Learn More

I enjoyed this event. It was well organized and there was not a bad seat in the auditorium. I got a little sleepy during the talk and actually dozed off a couple of times. I thought the talk would get a little more detailed and technical. The accompanying slide show was very helpful.
