We Have The Technology says
Join science journalist Kara Platoni to explore human capability, scientific ingenuity, and the ways researchers are changing how we experience the world. While writing her new book, We Have the Technology: How Biohackers, Foodies, Physicians, and Scientists Are Transforming Human Perception, One Sense at a Time, Platoni encountered projects such as engineering scents that stimulate lost memories in Alzheimer’s patients, developing brain-controlled robotic limbs that could provide people using prosthetics with a sense of touch, and searching for the elusive sixth taste, right here in our own Genetics of Taste Lab with curator Nicole Garneau. Hear stories of perfumers, picklers, soldiers, body “modders,” cyborgs, surgeons, clockmakers, and bartenders who could lead our species down some very interesting paths in the future. A book sale & signing will follow the lecture.
