The program features guests involved in cutting edge research, writing and teaching relating to improving the quality of our information environment, belief formation and civil dialogue. This show is produced in KMUD's studios in Redway, California. If your station decides to carry the show, please drop us a line at tc@kmud.org.
This episode focuses on how we humans "construct" our perceptions of reality using our “Bayesian Brain” to integrate incoming sensory information with our preconceived notions of the world around us. Citing work done by Dr. Anil Seth, Professor of Cognitive and Computational Neuroscience at the University of Sussex in England, Bob and Julia discuss this and related topics appearing in the special edition of "Scientific American", titled: "Truth Lies & Uncertainty."
