The Brain is our last frontier and consciousness is expanding



Dr. Heather Berlin

TEDx Talks

Posted: Feb 2, 2015


The brain may seem mysterious, but here Dr. Berlin gives us a basic primer of consciousness and creativity. Heather’s talk illuminates the unique opportunities of the youth brain, mind and consciousness.

Dr. Heather Berlin is a cognitive neuroscientist and Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Neuroscience at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. She explores the complex interactions of the human brain and mind with the goal of contributing to improved treatment and prevention of impulsive and compulsive psychiatric disorders. She is also interested in the neural basis of consciousness, dynamic unconscious processes, and creativity, and is passionate about public outreach and science communication.
