Lecture Description

Tune in for this unusual presentation on autism by someone with autism. Animal Science professor Temple Grandin, who designs livestock handling facilities, discusses the workings of the mind of a visual thinker like herself. She discusses how she uses concrete visual metaphors — including a nonverbal video library of particular people, places and associations — to make sense of the world around her. Series: "M.I.N.D.
