Princeton University Professor Explains the Secrets of Our Brain | Sabine Kastner on ATTENTION - 2

Our special guest Professor Sabine Kastner, currently a professor at the Princeton neuroscience institute. She is studying how the brain weeds out important information from everyday scenes. Using functional magnetic resonance imaging, Professor Kastner is able to peek inside the brain and see what areas are active when a person sees a face, place, or object. Most impressively, Professor Kastner did her postdoctoral research at the National Institute for Mental Health and her research is funded by the national science foundation.She has written the Oxford handbook of attention and has started the young frontier of mind foundation to encourage other kids to learn more about neuroscience. Today we are going to learn more about her research regarding how large-scale networks achieve cognition.

I am Rachel Stephen, and I am a freshman at Montgomery High School. I always had a passion for bringing change and promoting self improvement in my community. Ever since I was in 3rd grade, I have enjoyed listening and learning about self improving success stories and through this process compiled several techniques that helped me become the person I am today. Now, I am making videos about easy and fun ways on how you can improve your memory.
