Publisher's Summary

One Day University presents a series of audio lectures recorded in real time from some of the top minds in the United States. Given by award-winning professors and experts in their field, these recorded lectures dive deep into the worlds of religion, government, literature, and social justice.

You are your brain, according to modern neuroscience, but how exactly do your thoughts, feelings, perceptions, and sense of self derive from this three-pound organ locked inside the black box of your skull? Scientists have been seeking answers to those questions for decades and finding surprising answers in the brains of people with psychiatric and neurological disorders.

Join us on a journey deep into the brain, the mind, and the self, as Professor Jessica Payne reveals the startling and exciting recent findings of cutting-edge neuroscience. How does your brain accomplish spontaneous creativity? How much self-control or free will do we really have? And what does the future hold, once brains begin to integrate with neural prosthetics? Get to know your dynamic unconscious mind, a bigger part of who you are than you could ever guess.

This audio lecture includes a supplemental PDF.
