BSP 124 After Phrenology with Michael Anderson

In BSP 124 philosopher turned neuroscientist Michael Anderson talks about his new book "After Phrenology: Neural Reuse and the Interactive Brain." One of the most surprising recent discoveries in neuroscience has been that every part of the brain actually participates in multiple coalitions and functions. This means asking WHERE a certain function is located or WHAT a particular region does are obsolete questions.

While the book is quite technical our conversation presents the key ideas in a way that will be accessible to listeners of all backgrounds. We also consider how neural reuse fits into the embodied cognition approach that we have discussed in previous episodes.
