A Seminar on "Neurotechnology: Enhancing the Human Brain and Reshaping Society"
Monday, June 30, 2014 12:00pm - 4:30pm
Neuroscience can restore and augment human cognitive and physical abilities. The Potomac Institute for Policy Studies is holding a symposium to address the social impacts of biochemical enhancements, sensorimotor enhancements, and brain-computer interfaces. Enhancements will improve cognitive function, mitigate physical injuries, spur new industries, create American jobs, and enhance interactions between computers, technology, and other humans. This symposium is part of a larger series, the 2014 Neuroscience Policy Symposia Series, that delves into topics such as data sharing, education, and the need for a National Neurotechnology Initiative. The distinguished panelists at this symposium will draw from their research and practice to advise US government officials, high-level industry members, and academics on important topics in neuroscience. The symposium aims to continue the dialogue between neuroscientists, futurists, and policymakers on the current state and future projections of neuro-enhancements. Neuro-enhancements that maximize physical, cognitive, innovative, and technological potential are invaluable to society.
