Colloquium: Diverse Brains

March 4, 2015 | 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Morton Ann Gernsbacher, PhD
Vilas Professor and Sir Frederic Bartlett Professor, University of Wisconsin-Madison

 

Humans differ. Most read with their eyes, but some read with their fingertips. The majority communicates by speaking and listening, but a minority communicates by signing. Humans are diverse, and so are our brains. When should neuroscientists accentuate these differences – and when shouldn’t they? Why should individuals, themselves, accept their brain differences? And how can we, as a society, accommodate those brain differences?
