The Recursive Mind
A number of mental capacities are widely regarded as uniquely human : these include language, counting, theory of mind, the concept of self, episodic memory, and mental time travel. A critical ingredient of all of them is recursion. Dr. Corballis will discuss the nature and evolution of recursion, and the challenge it poses for neuroscience.
The talk will take place in the room DS-R510, at Université du Québec à Montreal, 320 Ste-Catherine Street East.
Everyone is welcome !
