Deep Mind was written by Operating Theatre and filmed by Meerkat Films. Funding for the film was provided by Wellcome and the Catherine Cookson Foundation. It was originally written as a theatre piece and was due to be performed at Alphabetti Theatre before being cancelled due to COVID-19.
It was developed in response to the Controlling Abnormal Network Dynamics using Optogenetics research project.
The film has subtitles which can be enabled through the Youtube settings.
Please contact the organiser in advance via [email protected] if you require access to captioning for the panel discussion.
Will I be able to ask questions during the discussion?
Attendees will be asked to keep their microphones muted during the film and discussion. However, questions and comments can be sent to the panellists via the chat function on Zoom.
Why is the film being shown on Youtube and not Zoom?
The film is being shown on Youtube as the quality of the film will be better. Zoom reduces the quality of films in order to lower the streaming bandwidth. Watching via Youtube will allow you to experience Deep Mind as it is meant to be.
This event has been organised by the Newcastle University-led Controlling Abnormal Network Dynamics using Optogenetics (CANDO) research project. The project is a world-class, multi-site, cross-disciplinary project to develop a cortical implant for optogenetic neural control in focal epilepsy.
