Facundo Manes in conversation with Iñaki Gabilondo

75 years of Paidós

Arequipa 2020, 

Is the human brain still evolving? Are the new technologies affecting it? The Argentinean neurologist, Facundo Manes, studied at the Medical Faculty of the University of Buenos Aires and is a Doctor of Science from the University of Cambridge. He has published several books and produced television programmes such as Los enigmas del cerebro and Cerebro argentino, together with the humanities graduate, Mateo Niro. His latest book, written with Niro, is entitled El cerebro del futuro: ¿Cambiará la vida moderna nuestra esencia? and it tackles themes such as interdisciplinary work, the impact of the new technologies on the brain, neuroethics, how to deal with mental illness and the role of science as a mediator in social problems. In conversation with Iñaki Gabilondo.
