Talking about the mind on an island, a desert island
I was indulging myself on Sunday lunchtime by listening to German-born psychologist Professor Uta Frith on Desert Island Discs with Kirsty Young.
I was being arty-crafty while I listened but had to take a break from the felt-making to record what she said, in a very short sentence, as it reinforced once again what I heard during Mindweek in the Nürnberg-South Hospital in 2011. She reiterated what the professors there repeatedly said in almost all of their short presentations – that we do not have the answers to all of the exciting questions being asked about the brain, we do not know what is happening in the mind and that we are a long, long way from knowing how the brain works.
