This Wednesday, 8am, we will continue our discussion on emergence of neuron functioning and behavior in the leech. Some interesting questions emerg..., er, appeared from the conversation last week:
- how does a emergentist scientist work differently from a reductionist scientist?
- are these two scientists asking the same questions? do they have the same goals?
- do they use the same tools? can one scientist use both techniques?
- will they come to the same results?
We will meet at 8am, Park Science Building, room 231. Coffee, muffins, and scones will be served. On-line discussion and resources here: /scienceinsociety/emergencegroup/
