Neuroscientist David Eagleman to Speak at NSU “The Secret Lives of the Brain”

Ft. Lauderdale (Davie), Fla. – The Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences at Nova Southeastern University (NSU), will welcome neuroscientist David Eagleman, Ph.D., as the next guest of the college’s 2011-2012 Distinguished Speakers Series. His talk is titled “Incognito: The Secret Lives of the Brain,” named after the speaker’s latest book by the same name.

Eagleman, a Guggenheim Fellow, directs the Laboratory for Perception and Action and the Initiative on Neuroscience and Law at Baylor College of Medicine. He is best known for his work on time perception, synesthesia, and neurolaw.

Eagleman is also a New York Times bestselling author. His latest book, Incognito:The Secret Lives of the Brain (2011), explores the neuroscience “under the hood” of the conscious mind—that is, all the aspects of neural function of which we have no awareness nor access. His other publications include the fiction book SUM: Forty Tales from the Afterlives, an international bestseller published in 23 languages. Eagleman’s book on the Internet and civilization, Why the Net Matters, is available as an iPad app and as an e-book.

Eagleman’s talk, hosted by the college’s Division of Math, Science, and Technology, takes place as follows:

Incognito: The Secret Lives of the Brain
Thursday, Apr. 19
7:00 p.m.
Miniaci Performing Arts Center

This Distinguished Speakers Series event is free to attend, but tickets are required. Tickets are available and may be obtained by visiting the college’s Office of the Dean, located in the Mailman-Hollywood Building, second floor.

About the Distinguished Speakers Series – Each year, the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences brings to campus a series of prominent leaders in their fields through the Distinguished Speakers Series.
