Beau Lotto: Thriving in a World That Doesn’t Exist

Visual perception can be misleading: our brains interpret what our eyes see by imposing meaning that may have been useful historically, but may no longer be the case in today’s rapidly changing world. Beau Lotto, Professor of Neurobiology at University College London, discusses how to see differently – including through science and play – and asks how to educate children to thrive in a world that does not yet exist.

This talk was originally published in February 2016.
