The Superhuman in you
Dr Paul Zehr (Professor & Head of the Rehabilitation Neuroscience Laboratory, University of Victoria)
Using popular culture as a way to communicate science is a useful way to share knowledge. Superheroes are tremendous vehicles for connecting complex ideas with as many people as possible. My use of “human” superheroes to explore the science of human potential began with training in Becoming Batman, explored what technology could do to amplify human ability in Inventing Iron Man, now examines the ever-advancing capacity we have to alter our own human biology in Chasing Captain America.
