The Royal Society have published two factsheets that teachers may use to build lesson plans and engage with their students on the topic of neural interfaces.
The first of these is a general introduction to neural interfaces that explores the field’s history, current applications, and future development. The second focuses specifically on the ethical issues the use of neural interfaces raise. These are both linked to the Society's iHuman neural interface report.
The factsheets are free and available for anyone to use.
