Dr. Moran Cerf — former Israeli Defense Forces intelligence analyst, filmmaker, pilot, Moth GrandSLAM storytelling winner — is a neuroscientist at UCLA in his latest incarnation. There, he maps the brain’s thoughts, memories, and emotions, working with epilepsy patients who already have their brains exposed for surgery and treatment.

Off-Ramp's Raghu Manavalan joins Dr. Cerf during one of his visits to the UCLA Lab, to talk about what Moran had found so far and where he hopes the future of research can go.
