Plenary lecture with Paul Howard-Jones: ‘The prehistory and future of the learning brain: How did we get this smart and what next?’
How does learning transform us biologically? What learning processes do we share with bacteria, jellyfish and monkeys? Is technology impacting on brain evolution?
These are just some of the questions explored on a fascinating journey through 3.5 billion years of brain prehistory.
Along the way, we discover:
E. coli in our stomachs learn to find food why a little nap can help bees find their way home
the many ways that action, emotion and social interaction have shaped our ability to learn and
the central role of learning in our rise to top predator
Finally, this trek through time will lead us to ask: Faced with the unprecedented challenges of the 21st century, will evolution lead us to enhancement or extinction?
