Brain Buddies Live Podcast

Did you know there may be quantum calculators in your eyes? The bizarre properties of quantum mechanics are now helping neuroscientists more precisely understand how brains and other living things work. Join C2ST for a live recording of “Chicago Brain Buddies” with the dynamic hosts: University of Chicago neurobiology professor Peggy Mason and C2ST Artist in Residence Aaron Freeman. They are joined by physicist Maria Weber for a lively exploration of how quantum entanglement in the retinas of birds help them “see” magnetic north and how electron superpositions (their ability to be in many places simultaneously) may be involved in memory formation and storage.
