Our perception of the world outside us is a result of the electrical activity in our brains. Our actions are also generated by electrical activity from the brain driving our muscles. The speaker will talk about electrical activity in the brain and our current understanding of how it relates to perception and action. Dr Raghav will also discuss new tools that are currently being used to better understand how the brain perceives the external world and drive appropriate actions.
