Description

David Eagleman (@davideagleman) is a neuroscientist at Stanford, CSO of sensory substitution technology company NeoSensory, host of Emmy-nominated PBS/BBC series The Brain, and author of Livewired: The Inside Story of the Ever-Changing Brain.


What We Discuss with David Eagleman:



  • Like organisms in a forest, the multicellular components of your brain are as much in competition with one another as they are in cooperation.

  • How your sensory landscape adapts to utilize what's useful and discard what's not as you learn new skills.

  • Why David believes the nature vs. nurture debate is dead (and that Darwin might owe Lamarck a bit of an apology).

  • How neglect can irreparably shape the brain of a child, and what this can teach us about the way different generations learn about, process, and behave in the world.

  • How senses like sight and hearing can be translated by technology for people without a native ability to process them, and why we'll be able to invent entirely new senses with the help of technology.

  • And much more...
