Description: In a conference sponsored by the Laboratory Fellows on the evolution and mysteries of intelligent life: George Wald, Nobel Laureate in physiology, spoke about the nature of consciousness; David Hubel, also a Nobel Laureate in physiology, discussed his work on the neural circuits responsible for the perception of form, movement, and color; paleontologist Jack Sepkoski talked of periodic extinctions on Earth and their role in the evolution of new life forms; and physicist Frank Drake outlined the logic for the existence of intelligent life elsewhere in the universe. A roundtable with the participants followed the formal presentations.
