How do we protect our neural identities?

Apr 3, 2020

This online conversation is part of the series of conversations "Hunkered Down Alone Together."

In this conversation, we focus on our brains, with Rafael Yuste, Columbia University professor of biological sciences (and much more) as well as a 2018 Tällberg/Eliasson Global Leader.  He talks about his work and his deep concern about protecting each of our neural identities.

You can listen to an interview by Alan Stoga with Rafa that you will find as a podcast, “What is a Thought?” They discuss such questions as could our evolving understanding of the human brain lead to a new Renaissance, what are the implications of this new knowledge and how do we protect each individual’s neural identity.

The online conversation took place on April 3 as part of the Tällberg SNF Fellows “Hunkered Down Alone Together Conversations”, a weekly long-distance discussion series.
