Fractal Brain with New Mavericks Cody Rall MD

Hey Cody Rall here with New Mavericks. In order to understand ourselves, we must understand the natural world.

Recent advances in physics have revealed repeating patterns in geometrical space. In this talk, I look into the exciting world of fractals and see how we can apply fractal theory to our everyday lives.

We will start with the founding father of modern fractal theory, Benoit Mandelbrot, then move into specific brain fractal theories by modern researchers Wai Tsang and Buzsaki.

Next, I take a leap and try to apply this theory to metacognition.

Hope you enjoy!


About Cody Rall

Physician & Brain Researcher Cody developed a healthy respect for the natural world as a youth raised in Alaska. In his teenage years, he would spend weeks in the Alaskan wilderness with his father, hunting moose and other big-game animals. Cody later developed a preference to photograph wildlife and study the world through science. As an undergraduate, he worked with model organisms in a molecular genetics laboratory, experimenting with DNA expression. At the same time, Cody was learning about health and fitness by competing in bodybuilding shows. Through modifying his own body with exercise and diet, Cody developed first- hand, invaluable insight towards human physiology. He then attended medical school in Chicago, IL to combine his passion for science, health and people. During his medical school studies, Cody found new passion in the brain sciences.

    Love your fractal metacognitive theory Cody! Great way to utilize the brain to develop higher consciousness for more powerful profound action in the world!!

      Thanks Raamon. I really think that uncoding the language of the brain will provide some insights towards how thought manifests in the physical universe. If we can gain even better control of consciousness, perhaps we can reach new levels of integration with the natural world and create something truly spectacular.
