A neuroscientist gives a comprehensive introduction into how the brain works. How are decisions made, what is consciousness, what’s mankind’s status at creating a brain simulation (still far away), and quite a few curiosities along the way are mentioned as well. It all seems like science is still far away from really understanding the inner workings. But it’s a fascinating topic nonetheless, put into words which are easily understood by non-neuroscientists.
