The future of the brain by Professor Steven Rose


Well-known and highly regarded scientist Professor Steven Rose gave this public lecture, entitled The future of the brain, on 4th November 2009 at the University of Bristol.

During his talk Professor Rose discussed the current state of neuroscience; what we now know, what we might expect to find out in the coming decades, and, in particular, how novel neuro-technologies - being developed to alleviate psychic distress - also to make possible an unprecedented degree of control over our minds and thoughts by the state. Professor Rose assessed these prospects and perils, and argued why he thinks the mind is wider than the brain.

It was co-hosted by 'Bristol Neuroscience' (, and by the University in partnership with the Bristol Festival of Ideas, as one of the lectures marking the University's centenary year."
