Hacking the Brain to Find Ourselves

October 6, 2016

Loyola University Center for Translational Research & Education
2160 South 1st Avenue, Maywood, IL, USA


The brain is what allows us to function, yet we understand little about how it works.

Using electrodes implanted inside people’s brains during surgery we can learn how thinking, deciding, feeling and dreaming works. In this talk, you will learn about the current neuroscience research about the way our neurons code our behavior, and how understanding this can help us grasp the nature of free will and our identity kernels.
