Who’s In Charge: Free Will and the Science of the Brain. Michael. S. Gazzaniga - A long video from a brilliant thinker

Michael. S. Gazzaniga had written a number of rather brilliant books, and presented some challenging ideas. For instance, did you know that it takes longer for nerve impulses to travel from your toes to your brain, than it does from your fingers to your brain? Longer nerve pathways take longer to get there. Makes sense doesn’t it? So how come we experience things simultaneously? Touch your toe with your finger. Our brain does that, with no help from our conscious mind.

So, do we have free will? It is an age-old question, which has attracted the attention of philosophers, theologians, lawyers, psychodramatists and political theorists. Now it is attracting the attention of neuroscience, explains Michael S. Gazzaniga, director of the SAGE Center for the Study of the Mind at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and author of the new book, “Who’s In Charge: Free Will and the Science of the Brain.” This link will take you to a complete interview with Michael about this subject.
