Event description
Neuroethics Canada presents "Hacking the Mind: How Technology Is Changing The Way We View Our Brain and Ourselves".

About this Event

As it advances, our relationship with brain technology will change. In this lecture, Dr. Nir Lipsman will discuss how our knowledge of brain circuitry, and how it can go wrong, has informed our understanding of human behaviour. We will then discuss the implications of more sophisticated, precise and less intrusive brain technology, on that relationship, and what it could all mean for the next generation of brain therapy and beyond…

Join us for the 2020 Brain Awareness Week Annual Distinguished Neuroethics Lecture featuring Nir Lipsman, MD, PhD, FRCSC (Assistant Professor, Division of Neurosurgery, Department of Surgery, University of Toronto)!

Everyone is welcome!

This public event is free, but tickets are required.
