簡介About:某些患有嚴重癲癇症的病人需要進行裂腦手術,即把左右腦的連接割開。手術後,病人出現一些奇怪的行為,例如在超級市場買東西的時候左手和右手會有截然不同的「喜好」、左右手在穿衣服的時候亦會有不同「意見」。為此神經學家作了不同的測試,發現這個現象是因左右腦功能的不同而引起。
這一組網上講堂,張恆鏘博士將由腦裂病人的現象帶大家重新審視「意識」這個習以為常概念:究竟我們有沒有所謂「靈魂」?靈魂和肉體各自負責的是什麼?肉身和靈魂的分界是否存在?

Some patients severely affected by seizures will undergo corpus callosotomy, a brain splitting procedure involving the severing of the two hemispheres. After the surgery, the patients show abnormal patterns of behaviour, for example, when doing grocery at the supermarket, their left hand and right hand seem to have different “preferences”, and their hands have different opinions too when the patient is putting on clothes. To this, many neuroscientists have done different tests, and they found that this phenomenon might be caused by the different functions that the left and right brains are responsible for.

In this micro module, Dr. CHEUNG Hang Cheong leads us to re-examine the familiar concept of “consciousness” by looking at the phenomenon in patients with split brain. Do souls exist? What are soul and body responsible for? Is such a mind-body divison real?

在2016/17上學期,本站提供兩類輔助課堂(大部分以廣東話及普通話教授,亦將推出英文課堂)。
  (1)文本三至五(牛頓、達爾文、華生):短片專為缺乏物理、化學、生物背景的同學而設,補充一些相關的基礎知識。

UGFN1000, In Dialogue with Nature, requires students to read science-related classics on their own and to discuss the core questions brought up by the classics that are enduring in the history of human civilizations. As a 3-unit course, each week, a 1-hour session of lecture and a 2-hour session of interactive tutorial are dedicated for each of the 11 classics within UGFN syllabus. However, teachers and students often reported that the 1-hour lecture is insufficient to provide necessary background knowledge for the students to handle the specific classic text on their own. It is common that most of the time in the 2-hour interactive tutorial is used not for the discussion of the core questions but for the comprehension of the textual meaning of the classics.

The “In Dialogue with Nature – Supplementary courseware” website contains a suite of micro-modules for each classics. The basic idea is to have the micro-modules to give further background knowledge to the students in various aspects related to the comprehension of each specific classic text in addition to the corresponding 1-hour lecture. This allows freeing up the 2 hours invaluable face-to-face teacher-student interactive tutorial for deeper discussions and reflections on the core questions and be able to relate them to modern issues and themselves.

As of 2016/17 Term 1, the website includes: two types of materials:
  1) In Text 3-5, the materials are designed to give extra help on students with little prior knowledge on Physics, Biology and Chemistry.  
  2) In Text 7-11, there are videos on further explanations of the background, special topics, interesting issues that are related to each text.
