5 trends shaping the future of brain enhancement and neuropsychology

Pre­sen­ta­tion by Alvaro Fer­nan­dez at the New York Neu­ropsy­chol­o­gy Group (NYNG) 2017 Annu­al Spring Con­fer­ence.

Descrip­tion: Hun­dreds of com­pa­nies around the globe–now includ­ing Elon Musk’s Neu­ralink and even Facebook–are research­ing and devel­op­ing new ways to help brain own­ers be smarter, sharp­er, and health­i­er. What explains this flur­ry of activ­i­ty, and where may it be head­ed? What are the oppor­tu­ni­ties and chal­lenges for the Neu­ropsy­chol­o­gists of the Future? We will struc­ture the con­ver­sa­tion around five emerg­ing and thought-pro­vok­ing state­ments:

1. There are 7.5 bil­lion human brains out there, and every­one needs help

2. Life­long neu­ro­plas­tic­i­ty means all those brains can “sculpt” them­selves

3. Mobile, sens­ing, wear­able tech­nolo­gies, cou­pled with arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence (AI), pro­vide a new plat­form to har­ness that neu­ro­plas­tic­i­ty for good

4. Entre­pre­neur­ship and invest­ments are fuel­ing accel­er­at­ed growth

5. Pro­fes­sion­als are step­ping up to help edu­cate con­sumers and patients.
