Speaker: Florian Jug
In this talk I will try to convince you that brain science is a tough business. Although we know more and more details about brains we are far away from having a big picture of what is going on while we feel and reason.
In the first part of my presentation I will show, for example, how brain lesions can affect speech, how split-brain patients live with two conscious selves, how Libet's experiments show that time is not what you might think, or how deep brain stimulation stops Parkinson and Tourette tremors. These short stories will be accompanied by lots of videos and pictures.
During the second part I will give a very short overview of what we know today about brain anatomy and physiology.
Hopefully this talk will succeed in conveying the main challenge and motivation of researchers doing brain science today - closing the gap between top-level observations (1st part) and detailed knowledge (2nd part).
