Neurohumanities Public Talks: Citizen Science and Brain Mapping

Join us on Thursday, 5th of April as part of the Neurohumanities public talk series featuring Amy Sterling who will speak on 'Citizen Science and Brain Mapping'.

Amy Sterling

Amy Robinson Sterling is the Executive Director of EyeWire, a game that uses citizen science to map the brain and is played by a quarter million people worldwide. Eyewire engages gamers to solve puzzles and map out neurons, allowing neuroscientists to chart synaptic connections and model circuitry at a macroscopic scale. Sterling is an international speaker and science communicator. She has advised The White House's Office of Science and Technology Policy and US Congress on crowd-sourcing methods. She is a leading catalyst of neuroscience visualization, from interactive web to virtual reality. Fast Company credits her with "making neuroscience into a playground for today's hot tech du jour.” Sterling founded the TEDx Music Project, a collection of the best live music from TEDx events around the world. She is also a regular contributor for Vice, the BBC, Nature, and Forbes. She was named to the Forbes 30 Under 30 in 2015.

Neurohumanities Public Talks

The ISSF supports a new and vigorous external speakers programme in the Neurohumanities that is managed by a cross-disciplinary seminar organizing committee. These are designed to bring STEM and humanities researches to reflect, discuss and think together, as well as to provide a platform for public engagement. It further funds workshops and discussion meetings that connect STEM and Humanities.
