More Info


Basic neurscience consists of the effort to figure out how the nervous system works when it is doing things (mostly) correctly, including examining how brain cells send electrical and chemical signals to one another to encrypt and decode all the information that makes us sensitive, thoughtful, active living creatures.

Indira Raman will discuss these signals, which compose the language of the brain, and will talk about how the quest to understand the tiniest units of neural coding can offer insights into larger questions about being human.
