Lecture Overview

Interesting presentation. Unfortunately the camera focuses on the speaker and we can't see the visuals or hear the audience input which are an important part of the presentation.

So interesting! I'm curious to know though why we have the idea that the sky is blue? Like if it really is white or grey or black where did it come from that it's blue? How did we get that concept and why?

Very interesting Related to the clinical world our concept of what we think we see and specifically what we hear are relevant as to how we conduct ourselves in our professional realm
