10/11/11: Brain Bugs
By Doug Fabrizio
Salt Lake City, Utah – The human brain is a remarkable system, but the neuroscientist Dean Buonomano says it has its share of "bugs." Our memory is unreliable, we aren't that good at multiplying large sums in our head, we have a hard time shaking superstition and our decision making is often irrational. Many of these flaws had an evolutionary purpose, but how well do our brains serve us in a predator-free, digital era? Buonomano joins Doug on Tuesday to talk about his book "Brain Bugs."
