Event Details

Registration is now closed, but walk-ins will be accepted

What are the plans for the development of new technologies at the Center for Brain Activity Mapping? How can advances in recording and stimulating the vast number of brain neurons lead to a better understanding of brain disorders such as autism, traumatic brain injury and Alzheimer’s? What could the potential industry applications be outside of medicine?

Distinguished Professor of Neurobiology
Director, Kavli Institute for Brain and Mind

Ralph Greenspan, Ph.D.
