Is Free Will Determined By Learning?

Stanford University professor Robert Sapolsky just released a new book called: Determined A Science of Life Without Free Will How could a field-leading behavioral neuroscientist claim we have no free will?  He’s not being tricky. He has scientifically arrived at the conclusion that what we commonly call free will is an illusion. You can get […]

Re: What Is It About the Human Brain That Makes Us Smarter Than Other Animals?

I share this article from “Neuroscience News” because it’s a good summary of interesting neuroscience, and because, like my prior post: “Sound In the Womb Provides Sound Learning Benefits“, it’s another example of how even neuroscience obscures the role of learning in our lives.
