Dr. Robert E. Hampson

Dr. Robert E. Hampson wants your brain! Don't worry, he's not a zombie. He’s a neuroscientist who is working on the first "neural prosthetic" to restore human memory using the brain's own neural codes. As a nonfiction writer and consultant, he uses his PhD to blog about brain science and to advise over a dozen science fiction writers. As an SF writer himself, he puts the science in hard-science & military SF, and looks for the SF influences in science. While not a zombie, he does know a few things about them, and will keep them away from your brain… at least until he can use it for his own nefarious purposes! He is a popular convention panelist who makes science - and science fiction - interesting and accessible to the public.
