Dr. Greg Dunn received a Ph.D. in neuroscience from the University of Pennsylvania in 2011. He fuses his knowledge of the brain with artistic techniques to visualize the brain’s anatomy and function in novel ways. Greg also has a background in meditative practice from the Hindu tradition and has lectured on the role of psychedelic substances in remodeling the mind.
Together with his co-conspirator, the physicist Brian Edward, they created what can be described as probably the most dynamic artistic representation of our brain. Before listening to this, just go online and check out the project Self-Reflected.
Greg has been a speaker at several Ratio events, so if you want more of him, you can check out the recordings here:
