Dr. Mark Miller is an assistant professor at the University of Hokkaido’s Center for Human Nature, Artificial Intelligence and Neuroscience. In this episode of The Scientistt Podcast, we break down Mark's notion of the “predictive mind”, exploring how the brain constructs its own reality from the top down. Further, we delve in to hard-hitting topics such as why addiction and depression may be the cause of an overly 'sticky' expectation model, and the overlap of philosophy and neuroscience as an area to improve human behaviour.
