Sackler Adult Course: Your Busy Brain
February 22, 2014
Your brain is a bustling center of organization, choices, sustenance and complex cognitive reasoning—how does this busy mega-computer accomplish all these tasks? This one-day course will give participants an in-depth understanding of how our brains are wired to extract relevant information from the continuous stream of stimuli supplied by the world around us, and how it prevents itself from overloading and breaking down.
The Museum greatly acknowledges The Mortimer D. Sackler Foundation, Inc. for its support to establish The Sackler Brain Bench, part of the Museum’s Sackler Educational Laboratory for Comparative Genomics and Human Origins, in The Spitzer Hall of Human Origins.
