Randy Buckner is interested in asking big questions about the human brain and behavior. What makes humans special? How did our brains evolve? How do we remember the past and plan for the future? Buckner is a professor of psychology and of neuroscience at Harvard University. Much of his research is driven by his desire to understand what makes the human brain exceptional and how brain activity gives rise to complex human behaviors, such as planning out our long-term futures and rehashing the subtleties in our social interactions.
