President's Faculty Lecture Series: Designing a Brain-Tablet App to Help Children Living in Poverty, Jan 30
Thursday January 30, 7-8:30 p.m.
500 Granville St.
Even with access to education, many children are unable to focus on learning due to the multiple traumas they have suffered: poverty, parental mental illness and addictions, homelessness and civil war. Dr. Alissa Antle will talk about her recent trip to Nepal where she found a need for a brain-computer interface in the most unlikely of places. For more info and to register: http://i.sfu.ca/XOKmuA
