Abstract:

Even as newborn babies, we have certain expectations about how reality works. As the years go by we build upon that frame of reference, developing even greater stores of internal patterns with which to compare and categorize information. For the most part we expect that a drinking glass will not levitate, and that objects may be safely placed upon a horizontal surface-all based on the brain's power of recognition, with help from the individual's point of view. In this program, James Burke goes inside a model of the brain to illustrate the theory of memory, recognition, and forgetting, proposing that reality may be a script that each person writes for themselves.
