Miks me magame? | Jaan Aru | TEDxTallinn

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Jaan Aru on noor Eesti teadlane, kes astub TEDxTallinna laval üles juba teist korda.

Jaan on õppinud Berliinis Humboldti ülikoolis psühholoogiat ning teinud oma doktoritöö Max Plancki Aju-uuringute Instituudis. Praegu ootab ta oma doktoritöö kaitsmise kuupäeva ja nokitseb teadusprobleemide kallal Tartu Ülikooli Arvutiteaduse Instituudis ning Tallinnas Talis Bachmanni laboris. Viimasega koos on Jaan kirjutanud ka raamatu „Tähelepanu ja teadvus“, mille valmimise ajal oli Jaan 22-aastane. Jaani populaarteaduslikke artikleid aju ja teadvuse kohta saab lugeda tema blogist „Teadvuse suure probleemi lahendamine“. Eelmine kord pajataski ta TEDxTallinnal just teadvusest ja ajust, seekord toob teda lavale üks teine suur mõistatus.

Jaan Aru is a young Estonian brain scientist who will appear on the stage of TEDxTallinn for the second time. Jaan studied psychology and defended his Master’s thesis in consciousness at the Humboldt University of Berlin.

At the moment, he is waiting for a date to defend his PhD dissertation at the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and working on some science problems for the University of Tartu’s Institute of Computer Science and in Tallinn in the laboratory of Talis Bachmann. With Talis, Jaan has also written a book called “Attention and Consciousness”. When the book was published, Jaan was just 22.

Jaan’s articles about consciousness and the brain can be found on his blog “Teadvuse suure probleemi lahendamine” (“Solving the problem of consciousness”). While on stage at TEDxTallinn, he will tackle another big mystery of science.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
