The Healthy Aging Brain

A neuroscientifically based account of how our brains age and change over time. What would you do if you could live to 122, like the Frenchwoman Madame Calment, whose life span is the oldest ever recorded?

Ontology of Consciousness

The "hard problem" of today's consciousness studies is subjective experience: understanding why some brain processing is accompanied by an experienced inner life. Recent scientific advances offer insights for understanding the physiological and chemical phenomenology of consciousness. But by leaving aside the internal experiential nature of consciousness in favor of mapping neural activity, such science leaves many questions unanswered.

The Resonant Heart

More than just a simple organ, the heart is a powerful regulator of our body systems . . . and our social relationships. By cultivating positive emotions and increasing the sensitivity of our hearts, we deepen our connections within our social and individual bodies.
