“Whether we’re blind or not, our vision is limited by our past experiences, biases, and emotions.” — Isaac Lidsky

Isaac Lidsky knows better than most how the brain confronts new challenges. He went from childhood actor, to Harvard Law School graduate, to successful entrepreneur. He also began to go blind at age thirteen, eventually losing his sight entirely by the time he was twenty-five. He will discuss how the brain overcomes limitations and how perception goes beyond the visual with neuroscientist Dr. Jacqueline Gottlieb.

The program will be followed by a book signing with Isaac Lidsky and his book Eyes Wide Open: Overcoming Obstacles and Recognizing Opportunities in a World That Can’t See Clearly.

Isaac Lidsky is presented in partnership with the Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives.

Brainwave is supported in part by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the New York City Council.
