Did you miss the EMBL Insight Lecture 2014 by Dr. Cornelius Gross on “Why do we do what we do? Exploring the neural basis of emotions”?
We are pleased to announce that the video of Cornelius’ talk is now available on EMBLog, where it can be viewed on demand. The media player provides the option to choose between a “slide-plus-speaker view” and “slide-only view”, and allows to jump to specific parts of the lecture.
In his engaging presentation, Cornelius provides an introduction to the study of brain and behaviour and explores the challenges scientists face when trying to understand how complex behaviour is determined. In the main part of his talk, Cornelius focuses on the role of neural circuits in controlling emotions such as fear and anxiety and shares his research insights into this fascinating field of biology. Cornelius’ central question in the talk is: why do we do what we do?
The lecture on the 5th December 2014 at EMBL Heidelberg, Germany was attended by 200 students from four local schools and followed online by almost 20 schools from across Europe. During the two question sessions, participants on-site as well as via the web engaged in lively discussion with Cornelius about his research work.
