July 23 Meetup: Brain Science and the Military in The 21st Century, 40% Off Tech Books, 3D Expo

What happens at DARPA, stays at DARPA… except when it doesn’t. A prime example is the invention of the Internet. The military has long funded research on unconventional ways to confer physical and mental advantages to our soldiers.  From faster healing to hibernation, enhanced memory to deliberate memory loss to save captured soldiers. Electrical stimulation, embedded chips, personal identity and the latest in neuroscience have all been explored by Jonathan Moreno in his recent book, Mind Wars. He’ll share what might be on tap, potential civilian applications and the complex ethics involved.  Please join us July 23rd at Giraldo’s Café – Brooklyn Law School. Jonathan’s books will be available for purchase onsite and here:  http://blpress.org/books/mind-wars/
