For those of you in the area, London's fantastic Dana Centre is hosting a neurotechnology-focused public science event on April 26th. Among the topics up for discussion at Brainy Brave New World: forensic brain imaging, neuropharmacological enhancement, chimera embryo research, and genetic engineering. The BIOS program's Ilina Singh will be one of the speakers at the event (her work on stimulant medication for ADHD has plenty of neuroethics crossover), and Stanford's Judy Illes will be participating via remote link.
Like all Dana Centre events, the talk is open to the public and will be followed by open discussion with the panel experts. I'm planning to attend and am very much looking forward to gauging the public response to some of these issues. Say hello if you stop by!
FYI: The Dana Centre requests that you notify them of attendance in advance, which you can do here.
