Science will disappoint you, until it doesn’t | Dr. Solaiman Shokur | TEDxLuzern
What could neurorehabilitation of paraplegia, virtual reality for monkeys, and the World Cup have in common? Solaiman Shokur, an Afghan-born neuroengineer and Senior Scientist at the Polytechnique of Lausanne (EPFL), tells his journey as a passionate researcher at Duke University, a rehabilitation center in Brazil, and a soccer stadium in Sao Paulo... He shows how curiosity and resilience are possibly the most fundamental aspects of the life of a scientist.
