Speaker: Hisayo Tokura-Gallo

Your brain controls the body’s functions and abilities. Some functions, like breathing and sleeping, are automatic, while for the other tasks, like planning and problem solving, you must command the brain to perform. The brain is important, but can you always trust the end product of your brain’s ability to process information? Sometimes the brain does not give accurate output. Sometimes it does not perform as you want. Other times, the brain plays tricks on you. Through activities in this workshop, you will learn how and why the brain deceives you.

Since Hisayo was an undergraduate student in Tokyo, Japan, she has been interested in exploring the relationship between brain functions and cognitive processes, especially language processing. This interest led Hisayo to graduate work in the fields of Neurolinguistics, Developmental Psychology, and Neuropsychology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Currently, she teaches Psychology at Gaston College.
