Bioelectronics: Understanding the nervous system, the future of medicine and the birth of intelligent machines, by Doctor Ben Metcalfe.

Ben Metcalfe’s area of interest is in exploring how we can interface to the electrical signals of the human nervous system, with applications including the treatment of diseases such as arthritis, cancer and epilepsy; as well as the development of more intelligent machines and computers. His talk will start with the origins of the research in the renaissance period, the work of Luigi Galvani, then cover areas of recent history such as cardiac pacemakers and other stimulators, before discussing current and future trends in research.

Dr Metcalfe was an RB & SE Whorrod scholar as well as the B Nicholson scholar at the University of Bath.
