About This Event

Event Description:

Livewire is a virtual entertainment event that combines neuroscience, neuroethics, and interactive media for participatory technology design.

Speakers include Dong Song, co-director of the USC Center for Neural Engineering; Eran Klein, a neurologist at the Oregon Health and Science University and a neuroethicist at the University of Washington’s Center for Neurotechnology; and Judy Illes, a former president of the International Neuroethics Society and director of Neuroethics Canada at the University of British Columbia.
