Stuart Kelter interviews Dean Buonomano, a neuroscientist at UCLA since 1998, and a leading researcher of the neuroscience of time. His first book, Brain Bugs: How the Brain’s Flaws Shape Our Lives, was a Wall Street Journal bestseller. Buonomano is the rare combination of cutting edge researcher and talented and engaging communicator of science to the general public. He has been interviewed about his research on timing and neural computation for Newsweek, Discover Magazine, Scientific American, The New Yorker and on NPR’s Fresh Air. His most recent book, Your Brain is a Time Machine: The Neuroscience and Physics of Time was published in 2017 and is the subject of today’s interview.
