Richard O. Brown: The Neuroscience of Nothing

 Jun 19, 2008


Richard O. Brown, Staff
Neuroscientist at The Exploratorium, talks about the interaction between
mind and matter and visual perception.

He talks about and illustrates
with fascinating visuals three concepts:

1. There is nothing out there
and we perceive nothing which he feels comes closest to blackness. 

There is something out there and we can't perceive it, which comes
closest to invisibility. 

3. There is nothing out there and we're still
experiencing or perceiving something.
