Interview: professor simon lenton
Laidon is a professor of psychology at Duke University in North Carolina. He has published two books in psychology; The Psychologist’s Companion: Thinking and Thinking Alone and Understanding the Brain: From Brain Scanner Theory to Neuroscience Today. The latter is currently being translated into 18 languages and will also be made available in 18 languages around the world at a $45,000 campaign on his website.
In your book이천안마 you describe a “critical moment” in neuroscience. Why that moment?
The critical moment was a landmark moment in the history of our field, and it came from neuroscience. Back in the 1950s, before neurophysiology or brain research came into being, we were writing about how the brain looked and felt, and how we were interpreting, analyzing, measuring, and making predictions about all of this. The first great neuroscientist, Edward O. Wilson, had noticed a connection between sensory inputs and changes in brain structure, and that was really the beginning of the development of much of neuroscience in our day. The most important discoveries at that time were what are called “neural imaging techniques” like positron emission tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. Then things like transcranial magnetic stimulation and PET went into the picture. All of those had a very direct impact on our understanding of the brain and our experience of the body.
We didn’t really understand how the brain worked but what we really did understand was that something was different with regards to how our brains worked. What was different, as we looked at it, was how the brain came into being. We really had no idea how it did that and so we got to see it as a system that came into being. Now, that’s one of the major reasons that I was fascinated with how our brains and our bodies can change so quickly.
Why are you fascinated by how fast changes in the brain can happen?
When I go into neuroscience classes, you almost always hear about the first five years of students. And every lecture I give I try to mention that it’s really really critical for students to understand the difference between a system and a thing and the difference between what is a system and what’에스엠 카지노s a thing. If the difference between what is a system and what is a thing, when a scientist studies a system, he’s really focused on one thing – the physics. It’s all about what is physics or how is this problem handled. He might be studying a neuron and he might be studying h온카지노ow a certain pattern of connection
