Philosophy, Information & the Brain

Thursday, 21 June 2018, 5 – 6:30pm

Philosophy, Information & the Brain

A public talk presented by Dr Rosa Cao, Stanford University, as part of the Neurohumanities Lecture series 2018.

Dr Rosa Cao is interested in issues at the intersection of philosophy of mind, neuroscience, and cognitive science.  Can we get a naturalistic theory of representation that works for neuroscience? How should neural computation be understood, and what is the neural code?  How does physiology constrain functional architecture, and vice versa?

About the ​Neurohumanities lecture series
Neurohumanities is managed by a cross-disciplinary seminar organizing committee. These seminars are designed to bring together STEM and humanities researchers to reflect, discuss and think together, as well as to provide a platform for public engagement.

The group also funds workshops and discussion meetings that connect STEM and Humanities. It provides seed grants for the development of new interdisciplinary research, particularly in the arts and humanities that connect to neuroscience and brain health.
