Michael Kohl talks about his key research interest in information encoding in the brain. In Oxford more than anywhere else, the question of how we learn and process knowledge – and how can we make it better – seems pertinent:
Research in conversation is a series of interviews with researchers across Oxford University. Each interviewee raises a question arising from their research, which the next interview follows up on, approaching from a different discipline. Together, these linked interviews form 'chains' that collectively, and from many different perspectives, ask big questions like what it is to be human, how to live a healthy life and our changing relationship with information.
