Header Berlin Brains

Let's take a cold hard look at how the brain represents temperature

It feels very natural to touch an object and immediately identify whether it is warm or cold. But how does this actually work? As natural as sensing temperature may seem to us, we still don’t know how and where the brain makes sense of temperature information. Jean-Sébastien Jouhanneau and Clarissa Whitmire explain in their talk how the brain processes sensory information to generate a perception of the outside world and what their results mean for all of us.
