Dan Lloyd
Brownell Professor of Philosophy

Dan Lloyd wonders how our gray and squishy brains could be the location of the symphonic kaleidoscope of human consciousness. For centuries this question was the province of philosophy, but now philosophy has teamed up with neuroscience, with revolutionary results. An explosion of research on the brain is bringing us closer to knowing what's really going on, in the neurons, when we spot a familiar face, feel happy or hungry, add numbers in our head, or engage in thousands of other tasks that flow together in our moment-to-moment experience of the world and ourselves.
