Uploading the Human Brain
In a brand new episode of the Knowing Neurons podcast, we explore the concept of "mind uploading". How would something like a mind upload really work? How close are we to uploading our brains right now? What kind of ethical, social, and legal challenges would it bring up? We investigate with special guests Dr. Adrienne Fairhall, Dr. Rafael Yuste, and Dr. Randal Koene.

I am very interested in neuroscience, and I’m so glad to have found this! It goes deeply into neuro topics, but is expressed in terms that are understandable to a lay person.
