The origin of thought: how do babies think and communicate, and how can we understand them better? -- The fuzzy borders of identity: what defines our choices and allows us to trust other people and our own decisions? -- The machine that constructs reality: how does consciousness emerge in the brain and how are we governed by our unconscious? -- Voyages of consciousness (or consciousness tripping): what happens in the brain as we dream; is it possible for us to decipher, control, and manipulate our dreams? -- The brain is constantly transforming: what makes our brain more or less predisposed to change? -- Educated brains: how can we use what we have learned about the brain and human thought to improve education?
