Brain Control: Thoughts Made Motion – From The Six Million Dollar Man to The Matrix

Sunday, October 12, 2008 @ 10:30 AM-11:30 AM

Daniel Moran, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Biomedical Engineering, Washington University in St. Louis and Assistant Professor of Neurobiology and Physical Therapy, Washington University School of Medicine

From The Six Million Dollar Man to The Matrix, machines that can be controlled by one’s thoughts alone have emerged from the realm of
fiction. Washington University biomedical engineer, Dr. Daniel Moran, reveals what’s new in the futuristic science of brain-computer
connections that is making it possible to communicate and control artificial devices like video games and robotic arms using only the signals from our brains. You won’t want to miss science’s 21st century update on 17th century mathematician and philosopher, Rene Descartes’ echoing thought– “I think, therefore I am.”

The Academy of Science is a proud participant in SciFest08!
