Sebastian Seung: Connectome
Delve Deep into the Mysteries of Our Complex Brain in Connectome
Are humans simply the products of our genes? Or are our personalities sculpted by a complex information highway of connections within the brain? That's the basis of MIT professor Sebastian Seung's book, Connectome: How the Brain's Wiring Makes Us Who We Are
. Seung's dynamic lecture will take you inside his ambitious quest to model what he calls the Connectome, the nexus of nature and nurture: the network of connections between neurons in the brain. If successful, Seung's model would uncover the basis of personality, intelligence, memory and disorders such as autism and schizophrenia. Take an absorbing, stimulating journey through the mind to find out what makes us connect.
