2169 - Think Again: Brain Limitations and Potentials
The human brain, a remarkable organ with 86 billion neurons and hundreds of trillions of connections, developed through evolution for survival and procreation, not accuracy or even perception of reality. As amazing as its capacities may be, it is equally amazing what our conscious minds cannot do, what we miss, what we sense that is not there, and why our brains developed that way. Why are there optical illusions? Why do we believe obvious lies? How are men's and women's or conservatives' and liberals' brains different? Advertisers and politicians use this knowledge. Designed for the lay person, this course does not require a science background and will include presentations, discussions, videos, and demonstrations. We will discuss how to overcome some of the limitations and how to keep our brains active and healthy. We will look at how our brain has evolved and how it is likely to evolve further.
