How Brain Science is Transforming Our Lives
Michael Yassa, Ph.D. | Director of the Center for the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory and Associate Professor in Neurobiology and Behavior at the University of California, Irvine

Over the last fifty years, studying the brain has transformed our lives in ways we could not have possibly predicted. Now, neural implants are being designed to restore memory loss in those with brain trauma. Brain-machine interfaces have already allowed a quadriplegic to kick a soccer ball. New ways to manipulate brain activity can alter and possibly even erase traumatic memories. We now know how to modify the genetic code to edit “faulty genes” and potential cure brain diseases before they begin. Discovery in basic brain science has paved the way to innovative technological advances as well as new generation therapeutics for brain disease. What will the future hold? How will next generation brain science shape our destiny?

This event is free and open to the public. Please email memory@uci.edu or call (949) 824-5193 to RSVP
