New York Times bestselling author David Eagleman takes his Emmy-nominated PBS series The Brain to the next level. Teaming up with award-winning composer Anthony Brandt, Eagleman unravels the complicated neuroscience behind how creativity works.

Remaking, reshaping, and reimagining the world is a uniquely human act. Observing brain-functions and thought-processes, big and small scale, from individuals to organizations, Brandt and Eaglemans collaboration illuminates reams of research and wide-ranging insights into how human creativity has adapted over time and the ways in which it has proven to be an invaluable tool in our evolution.

Join the conversation as one of the nations foremost neuroscientists sits down with his peer, one of the leading avant-garde composers of our time to discuss how and why it is that humans are so creative. Their conversation will be moderated by Kishore Hari, a science educator who specializes in producing innovative live science events. Kishore is a former chemist who previously founded an environmental services company that specialized in treatment and removal of mercury.
