Identidad personal y privacidad mental en la era de la neurotecnología en el Parque de las Ciencias

Are we ready to face a new era of hyperconnectivity between humans and machines? Will it be safe to implant a device in the brain that can perhaps be controlled from the outside? Will technology be able to limit freedom of thought? What ethical limits should the development of neurotechnology have?

All these topics will be discussed next June 21st at 18:00 at the Parque de las Ciencias by the Professor of Neurology at the University of Malaga, Marcelo Berthier, and the Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience and Director of the Mind, Brain and Behavior Research Center of the University of Granada, María Ruz, with the moderation and guidance of the Professor of Geodynamics at the University of Granada and Head of the R&D Department of the Parque de las Ciencias, Ana Crespo.

After the experts' presentations, there will be a round of questions so that attendees can ask any questions they wish to discuss in more depth.


The Parque de las Ciencias is organizing this activity as part of the TechEthos project, which aims to strengthen the role of the European Union as a pioneer in promoting ethical codes for the development and implementation of emerging technologies. Sixteen research centers, universities and associations from thirteen European countries are taking part in this project.
