Revolutions in neurotechnology will soon influence every aspect of human life. The Potomac Institute for Policy Studies Center for Neurotechnology Studies (CNS) announces the release of Trends in Neurotechnology August 2015

This report reviews recent technology trends in neuroscience. The information has been compiled through extensive literature review, seminars, and discussions with professionals at the forefront of the field. The report also analyzes the various impacts neurotechnology does, can, and will have on society, and identifies major funders of neurotechnology initiatives. Trends in increasing quality and quantity of neuroscience research allows us to create recommendations for the expansion of neurotechnology application. The information, assembled here, demonstrates the vast implications of neurotechnology, not only for particular fields such as medicine and defense, but also for society as a whole.

CNS provides neutral, in-depth analysis of matters at the intersection of neurotechnology and public policy. It provides a forum for reasoned consideration of these issues both by subject area experts and by the public. The Center serves as authoritative counsel to government agencies pursuing neurotechnology, by providing expertise in the sciences, law, and policy through discussion on the implications of neurotechnology in academic, administrative, entrepreneurial, regulatory, legislative, and judicial enterprises. In turn, the Center is a highly sought partner by the research community for advice, partnership, and advocacy for the public and private funding of key neurotechnology research.
