The Ever-Changing Brain with David Eagleman and Brian Eno

Intelligence Squared

What does drug withdrawal have in common with a broken heart? Why is the enemy of memory not time, but other memories? How can a blind person learn to see with her tongue or a deaf person learn to hear with his skin? Why did many people in the 1980s mistakenly perceive book pages to be slightly red in colour? Will we one day be able to control a robot with our thoughts, just as we do our fingers and toes? Why do we dream at night, and what does that have to do with the rotation of the planet?These are just some of the questions David Eagleman answered when he came to Intelligence Squared for this exclusive online event. Eagleman is a leading neuroscientist, as well as one of the world’s most dynamic and engaging science communicators. He specialises in brain plasticity – the idea that our brains are constantly changing and reconfiguring the world around us. The more experiences we have, the more the brain absorbs and the more it adjusts. In conversation with musician and producer Brian Eno, Eagleman discussed his latest findings which he outlines in his new book, Livewired: The Inside Story of the Ever-Changing Brain. And he showed that far from getting less malleable as we get older, our brains can continue to learn and absorb information quickly, if we keep on providing them with stimuli and new experiences.To buy the book click here: https://www.primrosehillbooks.com/product/livewired-the-inside-story-of-the-ever-changing-brain-david-eagleman-intel/ Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/intelligencesquared.See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

128. Robert Kolker with Dr. David Eagleman: The Extraordinary History of Schizophrenia in One Family

Town Hall Seattle Science Series

From the outside, the Galvin family seemed to be living the American Dream: a happy family with twelve children who perfectly spanned the baby boom, and a trajectory of upward mobility. Behind the scenes was a different story: psychological breakdown, sudden shocking violence, hidden abuse. By the mid-1970s, six of the ten Galvin boys, one after another, were diagnosed as schizophrenic. How could all this happen to one family? Award-winning author Robert Kolker joined us in conversation with neuroscientist Dr. David Eagleman to share this heartrending story, the subject of his book Hidden Valley Road: Inside the Mind of An American Family. With clarity and compassion, he presented the extraordinary history of the Galvins, one of the first families to be studied by the National Institute of Mental Health. Exploring how their story offers a shadow history of the science of schizophrenia and how their stolen DNA has informed decades of genetic research, he uncovered one family’s unforgettable legacy of suffering, love, and hope. Robert Kolker is the New York Times bestselling author of Lost Girls. As a journalist, his work has appeared in New York Magazine, Bloomberg Businessweek, The New York Times Magazine, Wired, GQ, O Magazine, and Men’s Journal. He is a National Magazine Award finalist and a recipient of the 2011 Harry Frank Guggenheim Award for Excellence in Criminal Justice Reporting from the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York. Dr. David Eagleman is a neuroscientist and internationally best-selling author.

474: David Eagleman | The Inside Story of the Ever-Changing Brain

The Jordan Harbinger Show

David Eagleman (@davideagleman) is a neuroscientist at Stanford, CSO of sensory substitution technology company NeoSensory, host of Emmy-nominated PBS/BBC series The Brain, and author of Livewired: The Inside Story of the Ever-Changing Brain. What We Discuss with David Eagleman: Like organisms in a forest, the multicellular components of your brain are as much in competition with one another as they are in cooperation. How your sensory landscape adapts to utilize what's useful and discard what's not as you learn new skills. Why David believes the nature vs. nurture debate is dead (and that Darwin might owe Lamarck a bit of an apology). How neglect can irreparably shape the brain of a child, and what this can teach us about the way different generations learn about, process, and behave in the world. How senses like sight and hearing can be translated by technology for people without a native ability to process them, and why we'll be able to invent entirely new senses with the help of technology. And much more...

08 Neurodiversity and The Ever-Changing Brain Featuring Sarah Kurchak and David Eagleman

Writers Festival Radio

Is there anything more mysterious and more fundamental to our lives than the human brain? But do any of us really understand how our brains work, where consciousness comes from or how best to deal with our unique quirks of perception?This episode features Stephen Brockwell in conversation with neuroscientist David Eagleman and Nina Jane Drystek in conversation with autistic self advocate and essayist Sarah Kurchak. Sarah Kurchak is autistic. She hasn’t let that get in the way of pursuing her dream to become a writer, or to find love, but she has let it get in the way of being in the same room with someone chewing food loudly, and of cleaning her bathroom sink. In I Overcame My Autism and All I Got Was This Lousy Anxiety Disorder, Kurchak examines the Byzantine steps she took to become “an autistic success story,” how the process almost ruined her life and how she is now trying to recover.In his new bestseller, Livewired: The Inside Story of the Ever-Changing Brain, best-selling author and neuroscientist, David Eagleman, takes us on a thrilling journey of discovery. The brain is often portrayed as an organ with different regions dedicated to specific tasks. But that textbook model is wrong. The brain is a dynamic system, constantly modifying its own circuitry to match the demands of the environment and the body in which it finds itself.The Ottawa International Writers Festival is supported by generous individuals like you.
