What you'll learn in this lecture class:

Today, neuroscientists are developing new technologies to listen to and decipher the electrical activity of neurons in the brain. These technologies are already allowing people to control simple devices with their brains and in the future, may permit us to recall memories stored in the brain, among other things. These innovations fascinate us but also raise ethical concerns. 

In this two-part class, you will learn how to use an electroencephalogram (EEG) to collect the ongoing waves of electrical activity in your own brain. Then, you will learn how to interpret this activity and use it to control things in the world. We will conclude with a discussion about the use of such technologies in law and society more generally.
