In this episode we speak with Dr. Antonio Damasio, who is perhaps one of the most influential neuroscientists of the last hundred years. His work has emphasized the role of emotion in cognition, the deep connection between brain and body, and the roots of consciousness in biological systems for maintaining life. The mystery of consciousness is the subject of his latest book, Feeling and Knowing: Making Minds Conscious. Antonio Damasio is the Director of the Brain and Creativity Institute at USC.
