"Is the human mind unique?" Webcast of conference

Join the live webcast of "Is the Human Mind Unique?" a free public symposium hosted by the University of California, San Diego/Salk Institute for Biological Studies Center for Academic Research & Training in Anthropogeny (CARTA) on Friday, February 15th (1:00 – 5:30 pm Pacific Time), co-chaired by V.S. Ramachandran (University of California, San Diego) and Terry Deacon (University of California, Berkeley). Scientists from many different fields will discuss cognitive abilities often regarded as unique to humans including humor, morality, symbolism, creativity, and preoccupation with the minds of others. Emphasis will be placed on the functional uniqueness of these attributes, as opposed to the anatomical uniqueness, and whether these attributes are indeed quantitatively or qualitatively unique to humans. Access the live webcast here: http://carta.anthropogeny.org/events/is-human-mind-unique
