4.0 out of 5 stars The best of talk TV October 5, 2010
By Haseeb
This second part focuses on vision and how percepts are made in our brains. It is the usual round table format with Eric Kandel and a neuroanotomist who names and explains what parts of the brain are relevent to vision. We learn very quickly in this discussion that it is not all about the eyes, it is about the occipital lope of the brain and images of different orientations cause different neurons in this area to fire. This was beautifully demonstrated by an old film in which a subject was shown things on a screen while the sounds of different neurons were monitored. When the orientation of the lines on the screen were changed, we could hear a change in the intensity of the popping sounds which they said were neurons firing.

They also talked about facial recognition and how different parts of the brain are dedicated to recognition of land scapes as well. A panel member pointed out on a brain model where the facial recognition part of the brain is. Curiously, she did not mention its name (the fusiform gyrus). The name is not terribly important, but when learning about things, names serve to simplify instead of complicating them. It's also curious that Oliver Sacks (who is at Columbia with Eric Kandel) is a neuroscientist who is known to have prosopagnosia which means he cannot recognize faces, yet he was not even mentioned. If they had Oliver Sacks on the panel, they would have been perfect, because he is a living example and a neuroscientist as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting conversations. June 13, 2014
Verified Purchase
The conversations were very interesting and thought provoking. I would buy more cd's if they weren't so expensive. It would be better to have more than one session in one package
