20 Minute talk presenting the fruits and labor of my three year postdoctoral research as a Presidential Scholar at the Center for Science and Society, Columbia University.
Three open challenges discussed in this talk:
(1) What's so special about smell - regarding its perception and neural basis?
(2) Philosophy of Science as part of Scientific collaborations: Where does Philosophy fail, can/should we do something new... and is that still Philosophy?
(3) Buzzword aside: Is interdisciplinarity more than being fluent (and potentially mediocre) in two fields?
