This day-long event is free and open to the public; lunch will be provided. It is the closing day of Summer Seminars for Neuroscience & Philosophy, an interdisciplinary event funded by the John Templeton Foundation and Duke. The program's goal is to advance knowledge at the intersection of the two fields to address humanity's "big questions" on complex topics such as morality, human nature, and perception. Topics on Saturday include, "The Role of Representation in Computational Models" and "In the Limit: Representing Continua in the Brain."
