Get Your Head Out of the Clouds!
The Science of Collective Phenomena and the Brain


How do thought, perception, and creativity emerge from the collective behavior of the astronomical number of neurons that make up the human brain? Individually the behavior of neurons is unreliable, but together they cooperate to form complex patterns of electrical activity, which we call brain clouds. This process may be key to understanding cognition, as well as a variety of neurological disorders including epilepsy. We will discuss the science behind these and other organized patterns observed in nature.
