Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)

The cycle of Innovation in Neuroscience has always been a slow one due to many factors. One of the factors is that Neurotechnology is still perceived as a futuristic technology even though it has been around for a long time. NeurotechX has always been a believer that anyone is able to master the field and, as such, our mission is to make a more connected and open community. This talk will help you understand the field a bit more, how to make it open and accessible, as well as provide the skills to properly assess consumer neurotech products on the market.

What will attendees take away from this session?
