The human brain is a mysterious kind of computational material, an organic three-dimensional textile that adjusts itself to operate with maximum efficiency, even to compensate for disabilities. (It is constantly modifying its circuitry to adapt to new conditions). Our brains are not hardwired but “livewired” says eminent neuroscientist David Eagleman, who will be in conversation with Shubha Tole on new research in neuroscience which is helping to understand how learning and memory result from the hidden workings of the brain.
