The Brain Science of Baseball

Baseball players today make home runs look easy. But hitting the ball with a bat just right is an amazingly difficult thing to do. At Columbia’s Zuckerman Institute, neuroscientist Daniel Wolpert, PhD, is uncovering the connections between body and brain that make such physical feats possible.

He says that by understanding how the brain controls movement, we can understand how it is that we move so well, from using our fingers to play the piano, to hitting a home run in the World Series.

Join us as we explore the brain science of baseball.
