Neuroscientist Beau Lotto Demos the Adaptability of the Mind

Complete video at: http://fora.tv/2012/03/24/Being_Human_Perception_Sensations Neuroscientist Beau Lotto uses a volunteer to demonstrate how the mind can adapt to changes in perception by hitting a target while wearing prism glasses. ---- As we use the tools of science to explore the nature of humanity, we are learning more and more about how our brains function and what motivates our behavior, built-in biases and blind spots. These fresh insights are interesting scientifically, but they also evoke significant questions about our lived experience. These perspectives challenge our basic assumptions of who we are, both as individuals and as a society. Beau Lotto is founder of Lottolab, a hybrid art studio and science lab. With glowing, interactive sculpture - and good, old-fashioned peer-reviewed research - he's illuminating the mysteries of the brain's visual system.
