Machines and the Mind - Cancelled

It is with a heavy heart that we've decided to cancel two of our three Brain Awareness Season lectures: The Neuroscience of Pleasure with Larry Sherman, Ph.D., and Machines and the Mind with Leigh Hochberg, M.D., Ph.D. We didn't make this decision lightly, as so much time and energy has been spent by dozens of people to create this program. Given the uncertain times, it is the best decision to keep our community healthy.

That being said, we will for the time being still hold our June 29 lecture with Peter Hotez, M.D., Ph.D. Dr. Hotez is an expert in vaccines and infectious diseases, and we hope he will provide some insights into COVID-19, in addition to the original topic of vaccines and autism myths, as we come out of this pandemic.

If you purchased tickets for these two cancelled lectures, you can receive a full refund at the point of purchase. Credit card refunds could take up to 14 days to process. If tickets were purchased via walk-up with cash, please email the box office to request a check, as the walk-up office is closed.

Advances in brain-computer interface

Leigh Hochberg, M.D., Ph.D.
Director, Center for Neurotechnology and Neurorecovery
Massachusetts General Hospital

The latest advancements in brain-computer interface systems are shared by Dr. Leigh Hochberg, director of the Center for Neurotechnology and Neurorecovery at Massachusetts General Hospital, Professor of Engineering at Brown University, and Director of the Department of Veterans Affairs RR&D Center for Neurorestoration and Neurotechnology. Dr. Hochberg’s pioneering BrainGate clinical trials demonstrate how these amazing technologies could provide communication and mobility for people with paralysis. With these ground-breaking tools, Dr. Hochberg presents a path to unlocking minds that have been, up until now, trapped by their condition.
