Neurotechnology and direct brain communication

Neurotechnology and direct brain communication, edited by Michele Farisco & Kathinka Evers

Welcome to a mini-symposium that will discuss new insights and responsibilities concerning speechless but communicative subjects.

Both infant brains and patients with disorders of consciousness (DOC) are at the forefront of contemporary neuroscience. The prospective use of neurotechnology to access mental states in these subjects, including neuroimaging, brain simulation, and brain computer interfaces, offers new opportunities for clinicians and researchers, but has also received specific attention from philosophical, scientific, ethical, and legal points of view.

When: October 6, 2016, 13-17
