In this episode of BBC's Tomorrow’s World Live, broadcast from Glasgow, we’ll explore how today’s cutting edge scientific research, and the latest technologies, will change the way we care for, treat and use our brains over the coming decades. This show gives you the chance to ask top scientists questions about big issues that will affect our lives in the near future.
Presenters Jen Gupta and Hannah Critchlow will be joined by brain scientists and other experts, as well as a live audience in Glasgow Science Centre and from around the world on Facebook and YouTube. We’ll discover new science that is deepening our understanding of the way our minds work and explore techniques that could change the way we treat brain diseases and injuries. We’ll also discuss new insights into mental health. We’ll ask whether, as we reach the next level of understanding, our attitudes to our brains and the way we use them could change. And we’ll explore how we could use technology to change the way our brains function in the future.
The show will feature special guests: Martin O’Neill (behavioural psychologist from University Oxford), Britt Wray (biologist and author of Necrofauna), Anne-Laura Van Harmelen (youth mental health specialist from University of Cambridge), Helen Minnis (Professor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Glasgow University), Yolanda Ohene (from University College London on brain imaging) and Alexandre Pouget from the Wellcome Trust on the International Brain Laboratory.
Tickets are free and for a standing audience with some limited seating available.
