Dr. John P. Donoghue, Director of the Institute for Brain Science at Brown University, will deliver a free, public lecture at Janelia titled, “Into the Heart of the Mind: Neurotechnology to Restore Lost Function.”
In his talk, Dr. Donoghue will discuss the relatively new field of neurotechnology, in which researchers are creating devices to treat brain disorders and to restore lost functions, such as sight, hearing or movement. This lecture will describe the current state of brain interfaces for humans and the future of repairing the brain with devices that can read out or write in to our nervous system.
