Brains, Minds and Consciousness

This is brilliant.

Its a series of videos taken at last year's Skeptics Society conference on, um, brains, minds and consciousness. It's so far covered evolutionary psychology (and why it is wrong), the neural correlates of consciousness (and why idealism is bunk), and where science comes from - and I'm less than a quarter of the way through. It's fascinating stuff and the speakers are wonderful.

It's a three gigabyte download for the "high quality" version (which suffers from some nasty compression artifacts), but that's about eight hours worth of video. Very highly recommended.

While you're waiting for the download, go here and vote for Yuri. This blog is running on Kei, but she's not in the poll.

1 Already voted, thanks to SDB mentioning the poll. I was somewhat upset by the immense lack of Kei in the poll, though.

4 Hey Pixy, I need some help with my blog. I sent an email but I'm not sure it went to the right address. Email me when you have time. Thanks :-)
