June 16 2017 — In a packed auditorium recently at New York University, some of the world’s most innovative neuroscientists and engineers were asked if they could predict the future.
“How are we going to unlock the mysteries of the brain and take that next step of discovery? What are we going to be talking about in the next decade?”
That was the question posed by Guy McKhann, MD, a neurosurgeon at Columbia University Medical Center and the moderator of an event organized as part of the 2017 World Science Festival. The event, a salon entitled “Engineering the Brain: Deploying A New Neural Toolkit,” brought together four researchers including Zuckerman Institute Principal Investigator Elizabeth Hillman, PhD, who shared their thoughts and their vision for how technology is transforming neuroscience.
