Michio Kaku, PhD: The Next 20 Years: How Science Will Revolutionize Medicine

Dr. Michio Kaku is one of the world's most popular scientists. His latest book, The Future of the Mind, hit #1 on The New York Times Best Sellers list. He has hosted numerous science specials for BBC-TV, the Discovery Channel, and the Science Channel. He has been a science contributor to "CBS News" and "Good Morning America." His previous books, Physics of the Future and Physics of the Impossible, were also on The New York Times Best Sellers list.

He is an authority in two areas:

  1. Completing Einstein's dream of a theory of everything, which can unify
    all of physics into a single equation.
  2. Predicting scientific trends affecting business, medicine, and industry.

He graduated first in his physics class from Harvard University and received his PhD at the University of California at Berkeley. Dr. Kaku has taught at Harvard and Princeton University.

In this latest lecture, he talks about how advanced sensors from physics and computers have revolutionized neuroscience. Telepathy, telekinesis, recording and uploading memories, and even photographing dreams, are now possible in the laboratory. More has been learned about the brain in the last 10-15 years than in all of human history combined. President Barack Obama and the European Union have allocated more than $1 billion to create the Brain Initiative that will map the living brain.

Dr. Kaku will sign copies of his latest book The Future of the Mind at the Spotlight Reception in the Exhibit Hall.
