“I think there’s really no end to the possibilities on the horizon for human expansion.”
David is an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Psychology and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford. He writes regularly for The New York Times, The Atlantic, Wired, Discover, Slate and New Scientist, and is a frequent guest on National Public Radio (NRP), in which he discusses both science and literature —his two passions.
He is founder of the company Braincheck, the scientific advisor for drama perception on television, and has been profiled on The Colbert Report, Nova Science Now, The New Yorker, and CNN’s Next List. He is Vice- Chair on the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on Neuroscience and Behaviour, a Research Fellow at the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies and a board member of the Long Now Foundation.
Eagleman has received several awards and honors. His influential neuroscience books include: The New York Times bestseller Incognito: the Secret Lives of the Brain and Wednesday is Indigo Blue: Discovering the Brain of Synesthesia. His novel, Sum, was named “Best Book of the Year” by Barnes and Noble and has been translated into 28 languages. Sum inspired U2 Producer (Brian Eno) to write 12 new pieces of music, which he performed with Eagleman at the Sydney Opera House. His forthcoming book, Livewired: How the Brain Rewrites its Own Circuitry (2018), presents his new theory of “infotropism”: why the brain’s fundamental task is to maximize information.
