Seth Herd

Senior Research Associate
Psychology and Neuroscience

Research Interests: What is human nature? How can a thinking, feeling, deciding and conscious mind emerge from dumb matter? How can we improve our lives? These sound like philosophical questions, and yet science is now able to address them. I teach and write to clarify what's important in current cognitive science. These issues are informed by my research with artificial neural networks and theories on vision, executive function, and how the brain learns in and over time.
