Join us for a faculty author talk with Dr. Michael Spivey, Professor of Cognitive & Information Sciences. Dr. Spivey will discuss his recent book published by MIT Press --- Who You Are: The Science of Connectedness. Who You Are addresses all of the assumptions about the definition of self, centralizing around concepts of being more than just our brain and body, but rather how our outward experiences, environments, and objects come together to expand upon what it means to be a human. Backed by cognitive science and neuroscience, Dr. Spivey will discuss his research and work related to brain and body interactions and how those interactions link humans to one another, as well as nonliving objects.
