Applying to MIT Solve? Here are 4 Ways, and 20 Resources, to Upgrade Brain Health in the Digital Age

Insuf­fi­cient brain health­care is one of the most per­va­sive and mul­ti-faceted prob­lems our world faces today. From the young to the old, the rich to the poor, those liv­ing in dense cities to iso­lat­ed farm­lands, any­one can be affect­ed by brain health prob­lems. Yet, cur­rent solu­tions to this prob­lem are lim­it­ed. While some inno­va­tions have made sig­nif­i­cant strides towards improved brain health, there is a press­ing need for stronger pri­or­i­ti­za­tion of cog­ni­tive health­care and more proac­tive inno­va­tion towards pre­ven­ta­tive treatments.

Here’s what the new MIT Solve 2017 Glob­al Chal­lenge says about brain health:

Brain and men­tal well-being are crit­i­cal to the health and hap­pi­ness of the 7.5 bil­lion peo­ple who inhab­it our planet…shifting the con­ver­sa­tion from treat­ing brain dis­eases to improv­ing well-being may begin to dis­solve the cul­tur­al stig­ma that makes it dif­fi­cult for many to seek help.”

Con­tin­ue read­ing the arti­cle Four Ways to Upgrade Brain Health in the Dig­i­tal Age, by Sharp­Brains’ Alvaro Fer­nan­dez, with guide­lines and resources to:

  1. Pri­or­i­tize scal­able solu­tions for all
  2. Har­ness life­long neuroplasticity
  3. Har­ness per­va­sive tech­nolo­gies and arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence (AI)
  4. Edu­cate users and encour­age human-cen­tered innovation
