Description: About the speaker: Terrence J. Sejnowski, Professor and head of the Computational Neurobiology Laboratory, is a pioneer in the field of computational neuroscience. Dr. Sejnowski received his Ph.D. in physics from Princeton University. About the lecture: 'What Makes the Human Brain Human?' This lecture will share the remarkable progress in brain science which now provides us with the tools that we believe are crucial to uncovering the mystery of who we are. We can now eavesdrop on the brain's swirling activity with new methods. Although the human brain's computational power far exceeds the fastest computers ever built by humans, computers are getting exponentially faster and can be used to simulate the brain. Finally, molecular genetics is providing powerful tools for manipulating brain mechanisms. In this lecture we will take a journey to uncover the mystery of who we really are.
