Nice talk by Keith Kendrick, a Systems and Behavioural Neuroscientist at the Babraham Institute in Cambridge, and Emeritus Gresham Professor of Physics.
How billions of interconnected cells in the brain can interpret and regulate all our bodily functions as well as mediate our experiences of interactions with and responses to the world around us is a huge and fascinating question that many different disciplines have attempted to tackle.

This lecture will consider what we have learned so far about the principles of neural encoding and how they may begin to explain our memories, emotions and conscious awareness.
