Investigating the Mind-Body Dialogue

Episode 169: Katalin Gothard, professor of physiology and neurology at the University of Arizona

The brain receives the blame for our mental failures because we believe our thoughts and feelings come from the brain while the body simply stands by. But University of Arizona physiology and neurology professor Katalin Gothard is investigating how the body influences the brain, calling the connection between the mind and the body a two-way conversation.

She will present details of her research on Tuesday, February 19 as part of the College of Science Lecture Series.
