Brain Thoughts

Lawyers do well when they encounter information and ideas outside the world of law. In that spirit I offer this video about the brain. Attention to how the brain works has grown in the law. One might argue that the law requires some conception of what it is to be human, to have intent, to think one way or another.

The video is from TED. It is Prof. Vilayanur Ramachandran giving the talk “A journey to the center of your mind.” He looks at specific conditions affecting the brain and offers some fascinating insights about how the brain functions and at the end a view of creativity that is fascinating. In addition TED delivers again with an excellent example of a good lecture. So watch, learn, and enjoy. (Approx. 24 minutes).
