This week something really neat is happening in Long Beach, California. It’s the annual TED Conference– a meeting of some of the world’s great minds of science, technology, design, and entertainment. While not all of us are able to attend the very exclusive TED Conference, we can all benefit from the wonderful videos they post of the TED talks. They very accurately bill these videos as “riveting talks by remarkable people, free to the world.”
All this week, to parallel the conference activities, I’ll post a favorite brain-related TED talk on this blog each morning so you can share in the learning and enjoy a riveting talk by a remarkable person. First up, our own Michael Merzenich on Re-wiring the Brain, from TED 2004. Enjoy, and if you like what you see, be sure to check back each day this week for another video.
