One of the greatest challenges facing the world today is the increasing prevalence of neurological conditions, such as dementia, in an ageing population.

The predicted costs of care and medical attention are enormous and will put an enormous strain on healthcare budgets. The most promising solution will come from innovative technological solutions, medical interventions and new medications developed as the result of progress in brain research.

For that reason, alone, the activities of The Brain Forum are of vital interest to those responsible for setting government policy and allocating budgets in areas such as healthcare. Taking part in the conversations and debates around the future direction of brain research and neurotechnology will enable them to make decisions based on an informed and long-term vision.
