“This is your Brain on TV”

Hugo Award-winning screenwriter Morgan Gendel will use his fan-favorite episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, “The Inner Light,” as a jumping-off point to discuss the role of the connectome on TV and movies and the real-life implications for Human 2.0.  In “The Inner Light,” Capt. Picard of the starship Enterprise has an undeniably real alt-life experience created by the re-wiring of his brain by a beam from an alien probe.
