Dr. Jennifer Ogeer, DVM, MSC, MBA is Vice President of Medical Science & Innovation at Antech Diagnostics (, one of the world’s largest reference laboratory networks, and a unit of Mars Veterinary Health (

Dr. Ogeer is also Chair of the Board Of Directors of Veterinarians Without Borders (, an organization that works with governments, educational institutions, non-governmental organizations, local communities, farmers’ groups, and international agencies, to tackle root-cause issues affecting public health, animal health and ecosystem health in developing communities around the world.

Dr. Ogeer is also Vice-Chair of the Diversify Veterinary Medicine Coalition ( which is working to bring greater diversity to the veterinary profession.

Dr. Ogeer is a graduate of the Ontario Veterinary College (OVC), University of Guelph, Canada. She completed an emergency medicine/critical care residency at Tufts University/Angell Memorial Animal Hospital in Boston and a Master of Science degree in Critical Care at the Ontario Veterinary College. She also has completed an Executive MBA at Western University (Canada).

Dr. Ogeer is a highly experienced residency-trained emergency and critical care veterinarian with a rich and diverse background in clinical practice, academic teaching/education, research and business management consulting.

As a former associate professor she has worked in specialty referral hospitals and several university teaching hospitals, including University of Guelph, University of Saskatchewan and Texas A&M University.

Dr. Ogeer is an active member of the veterinary community, and has published various articles in peer-reviewed journals and conducted research on hospital-acquired infections and developed protocols for infectious disease outbreak management and prevention.

Scientists have successfully taught a collection of human brain cells in a petri dish how to play the video game “Pong” — kind of.

Researchers at the biotechnology startup Cortical Labs have created “ mini-brains ” consisting of 800,000 to one million living human brain cells in a petri dish, New Scientist reports. The cells are placed on top of a microelectrode array that analyzes the neural activity.

We think it’s fair to call them cyborg brains, Brett Kagan, chief scientific officer at Cortical Labs and research lead of the project, told New Scientist.

One of the reasons branching identity is being accepted more seriously these days.

Beginning in the 1950s, experiments with split-brain patients revealed that consciousness could be divided between the two hemispheres of the brain. A surprising implication was that if consciousness could be divided, then it could also be combined. Evidence of this came in 2006, when conjoined twins Krista and Tatiana Hogan were born. The Hogan sisters were born with their brains connected by a thalamic bridge, which allowed a unique mental connection between them. We explore this surprising mental connection, and the possibility that we may one day connect our own minds with other conscious beings, together with what this might mean for our concept of self, identity, and the future of mind.

In this episode, Dr. Huberman is joined by Dr. David Berson, Professor and Chairman of Neuroscience at Brown University. Dr. Berson discovered the neurons in your eye that set your biological rhythms for sleep, wakefulness, mood and appetite. He is also a world-renowned teacher of basic and advanced neuroscience, having taught thousands of university lectures on this topic. Many of his students have become world-leading neuroscientists and teachers themselves.

Here Dr. Berson takes us on a structured journey into and around the nervous system, explaining: how we perceive the world and our internal landscape, how we balance, see, and remember. Also, how we learn and perform reflexive and deliberate actions, how we visualize and imagine in our mind, and how the various circuits of the brain coordinate all these incredible feats.

Most physicists and philosophers now agree that time is emergent while Digital Presentism denotes: Time emerges from complex qualia computing at the level of observer experiential reality. Time emerges from experiential data, it’s an epiphenomenon of consciousness. From moment to moment, you are co-writing your own story, co-producing your own “participatory reality” — your stream of consciousness is not subject to some kind of deterministic “script.” You are entitled to degrees of freedom. If we are to create high fidelity first-person simulated realities that also may be part of intersubjectivity-based Metaverse, then D-Theory of Time gives us a clear-cut guiding principle for doing just that.

To us humans, to be alive is to perceive the flow of time. Our perception of time is linear – we remember the past, we live in the present and we look forward to the future.

In systemizing consciousness studies some recent progress has been made, but the temporal dimension of consciousness, notably the D-Theory of Time might be at least as essential to our understanding of what we call human consciousness.

Our experience of time can be understood as a fractal dimension, not even a half dimension – we are subjected to our species-specific algorithmic sense of time flow. What’s necessary for completion of quantum information processing, though, is a collapse of possibilities – “many worlds” collapsing into an observer’s temporal singularity, i.e., the present moment which happens approximately every 1/10 of a second. Between conscious moments lie incredibly vast and “eternally long” potentialities of something happening. But rest assured, you will experience a sequence of those “digital” moments which gives you a sense of subjective reality.

Is time fundamental or emergent? How does time exist, if at all? How can we update the current epistemic status of temporal ontology? Digital Presentism: D-Theory of Time outlines a new theory of time, for to understand our experiential reality and consciousness, we need to understand TIME.

Consciousness and time are intimately interwoven. Time is change (between static 3D frames), 4th dimension. The flow of time is a rate of change, computation, and conscious awareness is a stream of realized probabilistic outcomes.
