Planning on being in the D.C. area on Thursday, Sept. 19? If so, please join us at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) auditorium for the free public event, “Neuroenhancement: Building and Improved Human Body and Mind.” Part of the Neuroscience and Society Series co-sponsored by AAAS and the Dana Foundation, the panelists and audience will examine the current range of brain enhancements, what might be coming down the pipeline, and what we as a society should do about it.

Pancrazio, Ph.D., chair of the Department of Bioengineering at George Mason University.
