*Theme: Lifelong Brain Development*

In this special session, Author Bill Harris talks about his new book “Zero to Birth: How the Human Brain is Built”

By the time a baby is born, its brain is equipped with tens of billions of intricately crafted neurons wired together to form a compact and breathtakingly efficient supercomputer. The book is meant to give a broad audience (i.e. non-neuroscientists) a sense of the step-by-step construction of a human brain as well as our current conceptual understanding of various processes involved. The book also hopes to highlight relevance of brain development to our growing understanding of cognitive and psychological variations and syndromes. The author will talk about the book including the many challenges and rewards involved in writing it.
