A reception occured prior to the event. Here, a Hutton Honors College student talks with Lawrence Barsalou.

Among his many honors and awards, Barsalou has received funding for his work from the National Science Foundation, held a Guggenheim Fellowship, and served as the chair of the Cognitive Science Society. His current interests "include the roles of conceptual processing in emotion, stress, abstract thought, self, appetitive behavior, and contemplative practices."

The talk was part of the College of Arts and Science's fall Themester Eat Drink Think: Food from Art to Science and was co-hosted by the Hutton Honors College.
