How much do we understand about how our brain works? Which technologies leverage this new understanding? What will be their impact on our day-to-day lives? How can we ensure that the benefits of brain technologies don’t create an even bigger divide between the rich and the poor?

In this week's episode, we talk to Dr Murali Doraiswamy, Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences in the Duke Institue for Brain Sciences (DIBS). Dr Doraiswamy is also the co-chair of the World Economic Forum's Council on the Future of Neurotechnologies and Brain Science.
