Chris Comer, neuroscientist, shares what new research reveals about our brain and literary imagination. Chris is professor of Biology and Neuroscience and dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Montana. His research is in the area of sensorimotor integration: how visual and touch-sensory information is used to guide behavior. Chris has taught principally in the areas of cellular neuroscience and animal behavior. During the summers he leads an interdisciplinary program in Dublin, Ireland, titled "Brain, Mind and the Literary Imagination."
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
