Episode 82 of the Brain Science Podcast is a detailed discussion of "Who's in Charge?: Free Will and the Science of the Brain" by Michael S. Gazzaniga. In this discussion you will learn why respected neuroscientist Michael Gazzaniga believes that we are responsible agents and that this is not changed by learning that much of what our brain does is outside our conscious awareness. We will also discuss why he believes that an appreciation for how the mind emerges from the brain is the key to developing new ways of looking at longstanding questions about freedom and responsibility.
