March 14, 2016, 5:00-6:00pm at SXSW
Join IEEE’s Spectrum’s Eliza Strickland as she interviews maverick biomedical engineer and neuroscientist, Dr. Ted Berger at SXSW. Find out how Berger worked to crack the brain’s electrical code over two decades. Learn how he successfully introduced “synthetic memory” in mice and primates with long-term memory damage, by electronically recording the brain’s input signals, predicting and replicating those signals. Hear about the future as Berger proceeds with U.S. funding to develop the world’s first chip-based human memory prosthetic for people suffering from traumatic brain injury, Alzheimer’s, dementia and more. Part of the IEEE Tech for Humanity Series.
