Neuroscience is one of the newest of the biomedical disciplines. This talk will briefly cover how perceptions of the brain have changed over time and how these perceptions have influenced our language when discussing the brain. We will then discuss several modern experimental breakthroughs in neuroscience and how these advances may shape our future. Topics will include an introduction to neurogenesis, induced-pluripotent stem cells, the human connectome project, optogenetics and CRISPR gene editing technology. Finally, we will discuss novel sources to promote neuroscience education.
