To mark the Year of Neuroscience, the CCCB hosted during the months of May and June a series of discussions on this matter, entitled In the origins of the human mind. Four of the world experts in this discipline, Henry Markram, Michael S. Gazzaniga, Francisco Rubio and Kathinka Evers, gave several talks on consciousness, free will, neuroethics, empathy and collective intelligence, among others.
All of them were interviewed by the CCCB Lab and explained the latest research on the brain. In this summary of the interviews, these experts talk about how consciousness is organized, how to apply the collective intelligence (which the insects, for example, have been doing for million years) how the The Human Brain Project, led by Henry Markram, can revolutionize studies of the brain (the intention is to study all neuronal diseases together and learn about the brain from different perspectives), and how neuro-technologies, despite their undoubted achievements, can also be dangerous when used for political or military purposes.
All interviews are available at the CCCB Lab Vimeo channel.
