Regeneration, Intelligence in Life & Memory — Dr Michael Levin

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, education, ethics, evolution, life extension, wearables

What is limb regeneration and what species possess it? How is it achieved? What does this tell us about intelligence in biological systems and how could this information be exploited to develop human therapeutics? Well, in this video, we discuss many of these topics with Dr Michael Levin, Principal Investigator at Tufts University, whose lab studies anatomical and behavioural decision-making at multiple scales of biological, artificial, and hybrid systems.
