What Can Brain Stimulation Tell Us About Being Human?

Major mental illness is perhaps the most disabling medical problem in the world and the global health community has responded to this crisis with increasing technology. While these technologies may truly change the problem, the side effect may be that these same technologies change who we are as humans. Nolan Williams, M.D., assistant professor within the departments of psychiatry and behavioral sciences and the director of the Stanford Brain Stimulation Lab, will explore how novel neuro-technologies challenge our conception of who we are and how they may have a role in human evolution.
