What does a zombie's brain look like? On March 20, Dr. Brad Voytek, Assistant Professor of Computational Cognitive Science and Neuroscience at UC San Diego, mapped out a zombie brain for students in the Zombiology STEAM elective. Dr. Voytek also discussed his work studying non-zombie brains in the areas of neural oscillations, cognition and disease. His fascination with the concept of zombies led Dr. Voytek to co-author the book Do Zombies Dream of Undead Sheep?
