TED TALK & DISCUSSION ON ZOOM on Monday, June 26 at 10:00 am.  Join us on zoom for a viewing of the 2022 talk “Where does your sense of self come from? A scientific look” Our memories and bodies give us clues about who we are, but what happens when this guidance shifts? In this mind-bending talk, science writer Anil Ananthaswamy shares how the experiences of "altered selves" - resulting from schizophrenia, Alzheimer's, foreign limb syndrome or other conditions - shed light on the constructed nature of identity. He breaks down where our sense of self comes from and invites us to challenge our assumptions about who we are. Call the Senior Center at 781-834-5581 to receive Zoom meeting details.
