A Neuroscientist's Neuroscientist Talks Science

Chuck Stevens


"Neuroscientist's Neuroscientist" Chuck Stevens talks with Roger Bingham about his trajectory through research science, his interest in scaling relations in the brain and the design principles that allow them, and the subtleties of consciousness.

For more Chuck Stevens on the scalable architecture of the brain, check out his lecture for UCSD's CogSci 200 course.

Charles "Chuck" Stevens is a professor at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, adjunct professor at UCSD, and external professor at the Santa Fe Institute. His research currently focuses on the mechanisms responsible for synaptic transmission and the design principles underlying the scalable architecture of neural circuits.
