Our next Citizen Science lecture at the La Jolla Library on Aug 2nd at 6:30pm. La Jolla’s Dr. Ed Gerck will discuss the current state of research on consciousness and the mind, and how complex systems such as consciousness can emerge from physical organs like the brain.
Many researchers assume that any process in the brain can be investigated using natural sciences: physics, biology, neuroscience. Even though the mind is often described as resulting only from brain activity, it has so far defied a scientific explanation or model in terms of natural science.
This event is part of the San Diego Wetlab’s citizen science lecture series held every first Tuesday at 6:30pm at the La Jolla Library and every third Thursday at 6:30pm at the Downtown Library. Please check the San Diego library system events page for location details and changes in the upcoming schedule.
