Overview

Program Title:

Neurogaming – What’s Neuroscience and Ethics Got to Do with It?

Video games are increasingly in the news. Teenagers are fighting virtual wars, three-year olds are learning language, and senior citizens are playing games in the hope of improving their memory. Rapid advances in brain research are also enabling neuroscientists, in collaboration with game developers, to develop games that contribute to observable educational and therapeutic innovations. While potentially beneficial, it is important to ask about the ethical and social implications associated with the merging of neuroscience with game development and use. Join an expert panel in exploring advances in neurogaming and what it may mean for all of us as we learn more about the brain.

There is no need to print your ticket. Check-in only requires your name.
