Tufts is hosting an event to launch the Stibel Dennett Consortium for Brain and Cognitive Science on
Thursday, October 22, 2020 at 4 PM Eastern

The Stibel Dennett Consortium was made possible by gifts from Jeff Stibel, a Tufts graduate in Cognitive Science, and it aims to enhance the interdisciplinary scholarship and research of the Brain and Cognitive Science community at Tufts, see Tufts Stibel Dennett Consortium. In addition to creating two endowed professorships, one of which Dr. Kuperberg is an inaugural recipient, Stibel donated a company (BrainGate, Inc.) and associated intellectual property focused on the development of brain-computer interfaces.

The live stream will feature a panel discussion featuring Jeff and members of the Tufts Cognitive Science community, as well as a brief talk by Gina about the impact of our lab’s research on future brain-computer interfaces.
