Dear Postdocs,

The Rivendell Institute is hosting a breakfast on December 7 with Dr. Peter Tse, Professor of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Dartmouth College, as a follow-up to the upcoming Faculty Round Table event entitled "Blameworthy Machines: Neuroscience and Human Free Will?". The breakfast is intended to be an opportunity for informal discussion with Dr. Tse and does not require attendance at the Round Table event on the previous night. To help direct questions, you can refer to Dr. Tse's biography. This event is limited to 25 people, and spots will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis.

Peter Tse Bio:
Peter Ulric Tse is a cognitive neuroscientist and Professor of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Dartmouth College.  He studied physics and math as an undergraduate at Dartmouth and then received his PhD in Cognitive Psychology at Harvard under Patrick Cavanagh and Ken Nakayama in 1998. He then did a post-doc with Nikos Logothetis at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics in Tuebingen, Germany before returning to Dartmouth to teach in 2001.  He has worked on various areas of cognitive science including human vision, memory and imagination.  His 2013 book, The Neural Basis of Free Will, focused on the question of mental causation, in particular the proposition that mental events (and information in general, as in genetics) can be downwardly causal even though realized in, or supervenient upon, physical events.  He was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2014.
