Dr. Reid Thompson realized as a medical student that by pursuing a career in Neurosurgery, he could think about the brain every day. What he didn't fully realize then was that 20 years later, he would still gaze on the brain with a sense of wonder. In this presentation, he will convey this sense of wonder by describing what it is like to operate on the human brain. We'll take a look at how as the field of Neurosurgery evolves, allowing us to open the windows of the mind, we can imagine what the future might look like.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
