SCIENCE: This month's installment of Ask a Scientist brings you a Tour of Your Brain. Aubrey Gilbert, neuroscientist and medical student, gives an overview of how the nervous system works, and perhaps even more interesting, what happens when it doesn't. The talk will also cover animals who can sleep one half of their brains at a time, blind people who can see, what the two hemispheres of your brain are really saying to each other, and the tricks your mind is playing on you every day.
