In anticipation of Hack The Brain Dublin on June 9th to 11th, a panel of leading academic experts will present five talks on their relevant areas of neuroscience, psychology and brain-related research, including the challenges and the emerging trends in technology used to measure signals from the brain. The panel will also demonstrate and explore the connection between art and the brain, how neuroscientists can analyse signals from the brain to make inferences about different topics, and the ethical questions surrounding the use of technology to explore the mysterious workings of the brain.

Hack The Brain Dublin is an immersive, creative weekend that aims to get artists, designers, neuroscientists, psychologists, engineers and developers working together exploring brain signals and brain-computer interface (BCI) technology to create artworks, prototypes and innovative solutions.

The final list of hackathon projects for Hack The Brain Dublin will be announced at this event.
