TED conference – How the mind works

TED stands for “Technology, Entertainment, Design” and it’s a long-running annual conference featuring brilliant people — “Inspired talks by the world’s greatest thinkers and doers.” They have a theme on How the Mind Works. I watched Vilayanur Ramachandran, director of the Center for Brain and Cognition at the University of California, San Diego, explore how brain damage can reveal the connection between the internal structures of the brain and the corresponding functions of the mind. You can also explore the other themes, 20-minute jewels, which are equally fascinating.
