Details

New developments in neuroscience may be used to change personality, motivation, emotions and other uniquely human behaviors. What is a “normal” level of happiness and grief? What is a “normal” level of anxiety and stress? Should we use technology to erase fearful memories? Who decides if we should alter the conditions of the mind? This lecture provokes critical thinking and debates about important questions at the interface of scientific technology and the human condition. Linda Boland, PhD, is associate professor of biology at the University of Richmond.

Reception to follow.
