"The notion of brain death was introduced in the 1960's. After fifty years of clinical experience, new questions are being raised about the adequacy of the clinical tests used in its determination. This presentation reviews the issues and invites discussion concerning possible ways forward."

Speaker Dr. Richard Maundrell, Department of Philosophy will present and lead discussion; the event is a collaboration with the Neuroscience Research Interest Group (NeuRIG)
