For some attendees, the highlight of the 25th APS Annual Convention was meeting a legend in person. APS Past President Michael Gazzaniga signed copies of his books and chatted with Convention attendees after his May 23 Keynote Address on “Unity in a Modular World.”
Gazzaniga is known for his innovative work with split-brain patients and his extraordinary discoveries related to the lateralization of brain function and communication between brain hemispheres. During the Keynote Address, he discussed the modular nature of the brain and how coordination among brain modules leads to unified mental activity.
If you missed Gazzaniga’s address, don’t worry! You can watch a video of the entire address on the APS website.
