Speaker: Steve L. Robbins, Ph.D.
While a little biased, neuroscientists believe the human brain is the most complex thing in the known universe. How is it that this three-pound mass can figure out how to successfully transplant a heart and then get stumped with a simple math problem? How is it that we can remember words of songs and then forget where we put the TV remote? Ever wonder how the letters FOX or CNN can turn the critical thinkers into biased haters? Our brain can lead us to do great things and then turn around and make us do things we regret. Join Dr. Steve Robbins for an insightful and fun look at how we might do more of the former and less of the latter.
