In this streaming UCTV video Lecture, cognitive scientist Martin Sereno gives us a survey of the brain's evolution. With thorough visual aids, Sereno examines the difference between the human brain and that of other species, showcasing experiments he has conducted that have helped broaden our understanding of the physical mechanics behind human thought. The biggest question he poses is why our minds are so special, when organically the human brain is 99% similar to that of the primates. Learn why size doesn't matter when it comes to brain power!

Which came first: words or the meaning behind words?

Breaking down the process of our cogntive power in relationship to language and introducing how our vision may have been preadapted to develop language through sexual selection. This lecture is very easy to follow and Sereno's thought process is very engaging to watch unfold.
