Show Notes
Rick shares the mic with two of the world’s top neuroscientists, who also happen to be related. Dr. Robert Sekuler is a Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience at Brandeis University in Massachusetts, and a world-renowned researcher in the fields of perception and memory. His daughter, Dr. Allison Sekuler, teaches at the University of Toronto and McMaster University, and is Sandra A. Rotman Chair in Cognitive Neuroscience at Rotman Research Institute, the President and Chief Scientist at CABHI and the Baycrest Academy for Research and Education at Baycrest Centre for Geriatric Care. Oh, and she’s a professional drummer, too.
As a trio, they riff on…
Blind spots: physical, cognitive and metaphorical
Getting the gist of things
Epistemic humility
Indigenous knowing, being and doing
Knowing what distracts you
Real and imagined time pressure
Learning new languages
Human vs. Artifical intelligence
Drumming: the mother of all ageing interventions
and a game show…
