Join UCI Brain for a discussion panel on consciousness. In this panel, Drs. Yama Akbari, Donald Hoffman, Megan Peters, and Theresa Jean Tanenbaum will discuss their different views about one of humanity’s biggest mysteries: consciousness and free will. Panelists will dive into a genuine dialogue on the nature of consciousness, our existence, and our subjective experiences; and will explore the origin of consciousness, and its relationship with the physical world and free will.

The UCI Brain Dialogue series is a monthly forum that brings together researchers studying one phenomenon from various perspectives. Events will include 10-minute presentations from 3-4 invited speakers, followed by a moderated discussion and Q&A. This series is designed for both academics and the public. Visit the UCI Brain website for more information on upcoming talks.
