Free Agents: How evolution gave us free will
Event Description

Do humans have free will? Until recently, scientists have mostly avoided this question, but with recent advances and discoveries changing how we understand the biological basis of behaviour, neuroscientists like Kevin Mitchell are tackling it for the fi rst time. In Free Agents, Kevin Mitchell, a prominent neuro-geneticist and popular science blogger, takes readers across billions of years of evolution to tell the remarkable story of how living beings capable of choice emerged from lifeless matter.
