Winchester Academy – What Makes the Human Brain Unique?

6:30pm - 8:00pm
Waupaca Area Public Library

Andre M. M. Sousa, PhD, is an assistant professor in the Dept. of Neuroscience at UW-Madison. Andre presents the differences between the human brain and the brains of other primate species. This includes discussion of brain size, number of neurons, brain connectivity, and overall organization of the circuits that govern some of our most complex behaviors. He also discusses how the differences we observe are generated throughout development. Finally, he will discuss how some of the differences that likely underlie cognitive differences might have made our brains more vulnerable to neuropsychiatric disorders.

Diane Forsythe is our program sponsor.

Stay a while.
