How brain science is transforming our lives

When: February 10, 2016
What: Evenings to Remember
Where: Center for the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory at the University of California, Irvine
Over the last two decades, new technologies have completely revolutionized our understanding of the human brain. What was once science fiction has become closer than ever to reality. What was once fringe has become the new frontier. In this talk, Dr. Yassa will discuss some of the most exciting work on learning and memory today, including implanting false memories, erasing pathological memories, memory prosthetics, human-machine interfaces, and a look at new techniques to understand the interaction of genetics and the environment in live humans. In this Evening to Remember, we will embark on a journey together to bring science fiction to reality and think together about what the next decade may bring.
