The Seed Salon

Considered the father of cognitive neuroscience, Michael Gazzaniga has long been fascinated by how the mind emerges from the brain. His work, which focuses on patients who have undergone split-brain surgery, underpins his many books, including Nature's Mind and The Ethical Brain. At the University of California, Santa Barbara, Gazzaniga serves as director of the cross-disciplinary SAGE Center for the Study of the Mind. He is founder of both the Neuroscience Institute and the Journal of Cognitive Neurosciences and is a member of the President's Council on Bioethics.
