Neuroscientists have struggled for decades to fully understand how the brain takes in information from the outside world and makes near instantaneous decisions. Dr. György Buzsáki is the Biggs Professor of Neuroscience in the Department of Neuroscience and Physiology and professor in the Department of Neurology at NYU. He joins host Krys Boyd to discuss his research into the way the brain computes signals in order to better understand human decision making. His Scientific American article is called “How the Brain ‘Constructs’ the Outside World.”
