Eric C. Leuthardt, M.D.
Wednesday, May 14, 2014
7:30-9 p.m. in The Living World at Saint Louis Zoo
Admission is free.
Join us for a lecture and book signing by Eric C. Leuthardt, M.D., Director of the Center for Innovation in Neuroscience and Technology at Washington University in St. Louis, and author of RedDevil 4.
Dr. Eric Leuthardt talks about how science is decoding the brain and how the technology of the future will fundamentally alter the human experience. Whether it's improved medical therapies for stroke or downloading memories, the rapidly blurring line between humans and machines will
change the way we live our lives. Dr. Leuthardt explores emerging discoveries in brain/computer interfaces and speculates on their social and ethical implications in this fascinating look at the narrowing interface between humans and machines.
The Science Seminar Series is co-sponsored by the Academy of Science-St. Louis and the Saint Louis Zoo.
Reservations are not necessary. Admission is free. All lectures take place in the Anheuser-Busch Theatre in The Living World/North Entrance at the Saint Louis Zoo. For more information, call (314) 646-4544.
