The brain is the most complex part of the human body. It is the seat of intelligence, interpreter of the senses, initiator of body movement, and controller of behavior. Although we know a lot about brain functions, we still do not know a lot. The neuroscientists’ mysterious question, ‘Can our brain understand our brain?’ remains without a clear answer. Recently, neuroscientists have been pushing the boundaries of brain dynamics daily, making progress in thousands of projects at a pace that paradoxically aggravates and thrills. In his talk, Dr. Kareem will shed light on the recent advances in brain research and discuss the hidden power of the brain. He will discuss how neuroscientists control rodents’ behavior and how they supervise their thoughts.
