Science Seminar Series

Lecture and Book Signing with Eric Leuthardt, M.D., Director of the Center for Innovation in Neuroscience and Technology at Washington University in
St. Louis; 2007 Academy of Science - St. Louis Outstanding St. Louis Scientist Innovation Award recipient, and author, RedDevil4

Neurosurgeon, scientist, and author of the fictional thriller, RedDevil4, Dr. Eric Leuthardt, talks about how science is decoding the brain and how the technology of the future will fundamentally alter the human experience. Whether it’s improved medical therapies for stroke, or downloading memories, the rapidly blurring line between humans and machines will change the way we live our lives. Dr. Leuthardt explores emerging discoveries in brain computer interfaces and speculates on their social and ethical implications in this fascinating look at the narrowing interface between humans and machines.


In 2008, with funding from the Children’s Discovery Institute, Dr. Leuthardt and William Smart, PhD, went on a mission to improve the quality of life for children with debilitating neurological conditions. They have developed a brain-computer interface that can record signals from the brain and translate them into movements of a computer cursor or robotic hand.

To be held at: Saint Louis Zoo Living World auditorium (north side of Zoo)

Parking is FREE in Zoo’s North Lot.

FREE & OPEN to ALL. Registration not required.
