some interesting some beyond me

(3,5 Sterne)

I’m not a scientist just some one who has always wanted to know “What’s going on in there?” I found some of the lectures fascinating and some put me to sleep. If your wondering about the evaluation of the brain you might find some of these talks interesting even though we can’t see the visual displays they are talking about. The general ideas come through. And we don’t have to take a test at the end.
