Thank you to the 118 sharp minds who have already ordered their $15 tickets to celebrate Brain Awareness Week by watching the latest on neuroplasticity, brain health and innovation. We need many more well-informed ambassadors of brain health and cognitive fitness, and are proud to expand the conversation that took place at the 2012 SharpBrains Virtual Summit.
Among all the online presentations now available (check out full Summit Agenda), let me share the five that impressed me the most. Each one provides an excellent entry point into the wealth of information and insights shared by 40+ speakers, so you can select the one most relevant to your interests, and start watching there.

Three innovators with combined research + business “hats” will discuss their respective paths to market, including technology/ content licensing, strategic contracts and grants, and venture capital.
