[masked]

 

SPEAKER: DR. ALEX WHITE - Graduate of Yale and NYU ( Cognition & Perception )


SUBJECT: VISUAL AWARENESS AND THE BRAIN AND ITS IMPACT UPON PERCEPTION AND CONSCIENCENESS

What does it mean to see something? Your perception does not always correspond to the physical reality of what's in front of you. Rather, your visual experience depends on processes in your brain. But could we ever fully explain what it's like to watch a sunset by referring only to brain activity? Dr. White will discuss these scientific and philosophical conundrums.


COST: BRUNCH is $20, which includes a selection of Buffet Entrees, salad, one soft drink, coffee, tax and tip.
