English presentation by Prof. Dr. David G. Senn, University of Basel: How the Brain functions in Animals and Humans.

Perception of the surrounding environment is essential for all animals and humans. Sensory organs (eyes, nose, ears) send signals to the brain. One of the main functions of the brain is integrating various qualities of perception, such as sight, smell, taste, hearing etc.  With such information it is possible to ‚produce’ an answer, a reaction, a suitable behavior. We will see how the brain works with these informations. Essentially involved are two kinds of memory in the handling of information: the immediate memory and the permanent memory. Furthermore the brain areas, which organize the emotional functions remarkably, influence the rational fields of the integrating (intellectually important) cortex.

All events are open for public – everyone welcome!
