    He looks like the Hitman who got bored of contract killing and got a neuroscience degree instead.
    Edit: Thanks for likes though.

    Me watching this video is a brain watching a brain trying to explain brains. That's meta.

    How does Wired find all these really charismatic professionals? Seriously, every series where they have a professional coming in and explaining their field always has someone who's funny, not condascending, and really good at explaining complex things conscisely.

    Wonder how much of this information would become outdated in 10 years. Not hating on him or anything, its just that we are learning so much about our brain all the time.
    Brain is the only organ that is learning about itself. Crazy if you think about it.

    6:20 I asked my ASL teacher once how deaf people dream. He received mainstream education since little (I.e. a deaf person going to hearing school and learned to speak), but in his dream, everyone uses sign language, even his hearing parents and friends/teachers.

    I plan on majoring in neuroscience in college, and this video made me even more excited to graduate and eventually become a neuroscientist!

    I loved this so much! Thanks Anil Seth for explaining things so well for us laymen. My son has autism, and I've become quite interested in how the brain works.

    "Some people with really good memories have a lot of problems in their lives because they simply can't forget" THIS IS SOOOO TRUE!!!!!
