Louise Eisenhardt Lecture

Speaker: Maria Konnikova

4/15/2019 9:47:00 AM 4/15/2019 10:17:00 AM America/Los_Angeles <a href="./Eposter?eventid=48888&itemid=PLENARY_I&propid=46971" style="text-decoration : none; font-weight:700">Louise Eisenhardt Lecture</a> Hall H; SDCC

In today’s lightning-quick, smart-screen world, most of us are walking around unthinking, asleep and lost in routine. But today, leading neuroscientists, psychologists, and social scientists are mapping how the brain actually works — its strengths, weaknesses, biases and quirks. Maria Konnikova is translating insights from the frontiers of the mind into imminently readable, perspective-changing prose — both in her New Yorker blog and in her New York Times bestsellers. Her latest book, The Confidence Game: Why We Fall for It … Every Time, is a compelling investigation into the minds, motives and methods of con artists. It is a careful, nuanced study of the art of persuasion and deception.

Jaimie Henderson, MD, FAANS, is director of the stereotactic and functional neurosurgery program at Stanford and co-director the Stanford Neural Prosthetics Translational Laboratory (NPTL). Dr. Henderson’s research interests encompass several areas of stereotactic and functional neurosurgery, including frameless stereotactic approaches for therapy, deep brain stimulation, cortical physiology and its relationship to normal and pathological movement, neural prostheses and the development of novel neuromodulatory techniques for the treatment of neurological diseases. Throughout his career, Dr. Henderson has been intimately involved with the development of the field of image-guided surgery and remains one of the world’s leading experts on the application of image-guided surgical techniques to functional neurosurgical procedures, such as deep brain stimulator placement. His work with the Stanford NPTL focuses on the dual goals of creating clinically viable interfaces between the human brain and prosthetic devices to assist people with severe neurological disability, and investigating fundamental questions in human neuroscience.
