Science of the brain

This is a conversation with Matthew Cobb. He is professor of zoology at the University of Manchester, where his research focuses on the sense of smell, insect behaviour and the history of science. His latest book "The idea of the brain" describes beautifully the past, present and future of neuroscience. Here we talk about contribution of philosophy and psychology in understanding brain, modeling of a brain, importance of connectomes, understanding consciousness and future of neuroscience.
