Over on the BBC website there are a collection of annual lectures called the Reith Lectures. Each year specialists in their field give lectures on their area. Back in 2003 the lectures were called ‘The Emerging Mind‘ and were lead by the noted neuroscientist Vilayanur S. Ramachandran (who I’ve talked about here a few times in relation to his work on phantom pain).
- Phantoms in the brain
- Synapses and the self
- The artful brain
- Purple numbers and sharp cheese
- Neuroscience – the new philosophy
There’s a great collection of resources over there as well as the lectures and the BBC Reith Lecture page is well worth a look.
