_____

Proud to confirm that Dr. Anna Wexler, a science writer, filmmaker and postdoc fellow in advanced biomedical ethics at the Department of Medical Ethics & Health Policy at the University of Pennsylvania, will discuss the Present and Future of DIY Brain Enhancement (especially brain stimulation modalities such as tDCS) at the upcoming 2017 SharpBrains Virtual Summit.

Her research centers on the ethical, legal and social implications of emerging neurotechnology. Dr. Wexler received her Ph.D. in 2017 from the HASTS (History, Anthropology, Science, Technology & Society) Program at MIT, where she examined do-it-yourself and direct-to-consumer applications of noninvasive brain stimulation. She is currently exploring the ethical and regulatory challenges raised by the full spectrum of interventions used in the home to modify brain function. For more, check out her website.

She will speak during the following session on December 5th, addressing a topic of timely and critical importance:

How will the Schools, Companies, Clinicians, and Consumers of the Future ensure appropriate use of brain enhancement methods encompassing lifestyle, supplements, brain training, meditation, bio/ neurofeedback, tDCS and more?
