Heads-up: the Imperial College Centre for Neurotechnology will host a keynote by Alvaro Fernandez on Wednesday, May 30th, titled Why the Future of Brain Enhancement & Mental Health is Digital & Pervasive.
As seen in patent and investment trends, research findings and consumer/patient behaviors, Mental Health and Brain Enhancement are rapidly evolving in transformational ways which some call “empowering” and some “controversial.” Alvaro Fernandez, Editor-in-Chief of independent market research firm SharpBrains, will present and discuss the latest market data and forecasts on how digital platforms are poised to revolutionize brain & mental health diagnostics, monitoring, therapies and enhancement.
