Galileo's Science Café: Interfacing Brains to Electronics by Dr. Nathalia Peixoto

  • January 12, 2017 at 7:00 pm

Gregory Family Theater

Dr. Nathalia Peixoto presents “Interfacing Brains to Electronics.” Hear about the latest findings surrounding hot topics in science and medicine that affect our everyday lives and the decisions that we make! Bring your family and friends for a free, casual, interactive science discussion. Learn from the experts and speak with them personally. 

“Interfacing Brains to Electronics” by Dr. Nathalia Peixoto

New breakthroughs in computer-brain interfaces can revolutionize the way that disabled individuals can go about their everyday lives. Our ability to see, hear, move, and think is controlled by neurons in our body that communicate by transmitting electrical signals.  Scientists are using the electrical properties of nerves, in conjunction with the power of modern computers, to develop computer-brain interface technologies. While this may sound like science fiction, our neural engineering laboratory is electrically stimulating and recording activity from neurons, developing retinal implants for blind people, and leveraging augmented reality to help people with disabilities.
