Here’s a thought: the brain’s got rhythm

Professor Roland Jones (Professor of Neuropharmacology)
The networks of the brain show highly rhythmical activity. These rhythms are enormously important for determining how we think and act, and how quickly we accomplish these processes. Roland discusses how rhythms occur in the brain and how they determine our speed of thought and information processing. Our brains possess an internal SatNav system that allows us to find our way around in familiar and novel environments, and Roland will discuss how brain rhythms are essential for setting up this navigational system and modifying it to help us navigate our daily lives.
