Effective altruism meetup - Neuroscience, quo vadis ?

Join us at 7 pm for a presentation on "Neuroscience, quo vadis?" by Michael Schartner.

The science of brains and neurons is rapidly developing, using
increasingly sophisticated tools and models to understand who we are. Motivated by the wonder of consciousness and the computational power of human inference, this talk will introduce: the IBL, an example of a large scale neuroscience collaboration that aims for more standardization, how convolutional neural networks model visual perception and how advances in electrode technology might revolutionize communication.

Michael obtained a PhD with research on EEG markers of psychedelic states and is now a postdoc within the International Brain Laboratory.
