Darwin, John, Headache discussed on Brain Inspired

Brain Inspired


Which i think is real which is his mind matter issue. This coq nisshin the whole frame. What we've got so in other words a and the final point to make about this. Is i think that scientists brother talks about this testify. You know scientists actually quite rare in the science germain. You've got a lot of ancillary professions statisticians programmers engineers a lot of professions. That are around this whole domain actual scientists people who are worrying in this more fuzzy global less local way is increasingly rare. Right and i think about when you read all of a saxes.

And and so. That's what i'm wondering i. My question was about neuroscience and philosophy specifically but of course then you have to have circle back around and learn more mathematics and you have to circle back around and learn all sorts of different topics and what is the right path to maximize the probability of becoming the renaissance person that you want to be right to to be most efficient one more to that pole when i'm teaching medical students or residence on the wards for example and you see a patient. I tell them that you should peg. You're reading to what you just saw. So you just saw a patient with hemi parasitic. Now is the time to read about motor cortex if you have a patient with a headache..
