Eric Kandel's Brain Creativity Speech Reveals Interesting Insights

Eric Kandel's brain creativity speech is a very interesting look into the history and creative processes of the brain. He discusses what humanity knows about the brain and just how curious it is. For instance, during an "Aha!" moment, a section of the brain actually lights up, which relates to that symbolic image of a light bulb over someone's head that illustrates a breakthrough idea.

According to Kandel, by better understanding the brain, humanity will understand themselves. This will lead to greater breakthroughs and episodes of higher thinking.

Eric Kandel concludes his brain creativity speech by stating how little humanity actually knows about the brain. This is encouraging however, because as Kandel stated earlier, that would suggest we still have a lot of potential left to explore.
