Talk: Decoding Thoughts and Dreams Using In-Brain Electrodes

Moran Cerf describes his lab's work studying the brains of humans using unique tools to eavesdrop on the activity of individual cells of patients undergoing brain surgery while they are awake and behaving. He discusses how the work sheds light on the ways our brain processes information, and reflects on what it tells us about how we create the complex narrative we call 'us'.
