Full Program: 2016 World Science Festival | 01:39:51

Original Program Date: Sunday, June 5, 2016

Featuring Neuroscientist Martha Farah, Neuroscientist Joy Hirsch, Philosopher, Experimental Psychologist Jesse Prinz, and Neuroscientist Daphna Shohamy with News Correspondent Bill Blakemore Moderating

With ever more refined techniques for measuring complex brain activity, scientists are challenging the understanding of thought, memory and emotion–what we have traditionally called “the self.” How do electrical and chemical currents translate to self-awareness? And why does the brain produce consciousness at all? Join a discussion among eminent neuroscientists, philosophers and psychologists who are redefining what it means to be human.
