About This Talk
The nature of the inner workings of the human mind have been pondered for as long as the human brain is old – about 300,000 years. However, the ability to observe brain activity was acquired only about 100 years ago. Dr. Hart will discuss the basics of brain function, from sensory inputs to motor outputs, with a focus on findings from observing brain cell activity.
