Sensing and Deciding in the Real World: How Physics Shapes Our Choices

May 16, 2017

Sensing and deciding are connected – our senses gather information to guide decisions and these decisions lead to more information. How do our brains collect information and use it to guide decisions?

Dr. David Gire will explore how physics shapes the strategies that brains across the animal kingdom use to efficiently gather information and make choices.
