Sebastian Seung, professor of computational neuroscience and physics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, captivated a standing-room-only crowd in RIT’s Webb Auditorium Feb. 2 as the featured speaker for the Caroline Werner Gannett Project’s “Visionaries in Motion” series. Seung’s research has spanned the fields of neuroscience, physics and bioinformatics and he is currently mapping out a new model of the brain that focuses on the connections between each neuron that he calls our “connectomes.” Guests were able to “connect” with Seung one-on-one after the talk during a book-signing event and reception.
