105 Brad Voytek - We Neuroscientists Don't Really Know What Your Brain Is Doing

The website for neuroscientist Brad Voytek’s lab begins like this: “Do not buy into the false belief that neuroscientists actually know what the brain is doing.” On the show this week we talked to Voytek to find out what he actually means by that.

Brad Voytek is an Assistant Professor of Computational Cognitive Science and Neuroscience at UC San Diego.

Thanks to guest host Rebecca Watson for joining us this week.
