Stimulus: Thinking about the Brain…

Posted: May 18, 2012 in Pedagogy, Stimulus

Here are two great articles from Carl Zimmer relating to the function of the Human Brain and including questions of the conscious. The first article:

100 Trillion Connections: New Efforts Probe and Map the Brain’s detailed Architecture, is a preview article of a larger one. (link to article on Scientific America)

The second article is titled:

Can You Live Forever? Maybe Not – But You Can Have Fun Trying, is a chapter from a book that Zimmer has published (link to article on Scientific America). It includes some interesting exploration of the concepts and thoughts of theorists and philosophers.
