The Lost Lectures

Free will as an evolved brain function.

In this rigorous, 15 minute talk, Björn combines philosophy and science to explore the topic of determinism. Sharing his discoveries involving the spontaneous behaviour of fruitflies and leeches, he levels a compelling argument in favor of free will.

 

Speaker Prof. Björn Brembs

Professor of Neurogenetics at Regensburg University: he’s also a prolific blogger and world authority on how the brain accomplishes adaptive behavioural choice, in other words how the brain is organised for reward, punishment and decision-making.
