Neuroscience for Writers: The Evolved Brain

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The human brain and mind have been a topic of fiction since time immemorial, but our stories don't always keep up with the science. The classic science fictional frameworks of the last fifty years have produced a lot of great stories, but a better understanding of the brain can lead us to new stories and new ideas. Join neuroscientist, writer, and Escape Pod (Escape Artists) assistant editor Benjamin C. Kinney to learn how we, as writers, might be able to make sense of the most complex structure in the world.
