What's going on here?
Students in the freshman seminar "The Neural Basis of Free Will and Consciousness" test to see which of their eyes -- left or right -- is dominant, in an exercise designed to point out left and right brain differences.
In this seminar jointly taught by neuroscience professor Michael Berry and philosophy professor Adam Elga (pictured in back), students look at free will and consciousness through the lenses of both disciplines. The aim of the course is to wed philosophy that is informed by neuroscience with neuroscience that addresses major philosophical questions.
