Imag­ine your smart­phone can detect ear­ly signs of anx­i­ety, depres­sion or Parkinson’s Dis­ease — would you like to know? Who else should know … and not know?

Imag­ine a videogame cleared by the FDA to treat ADHD or sub­stance abuse — how will doc­tors pre­scribe it, patients access it, and insur­ers pay for it?

Imag­ine being respon­si­ble for the health & well­ness of your orga­ni­za­tion — how will you nav­i­gate the grow­ing toolk­it of evi­dence-based inter­ven­tions such as exercise/ meditation/ sleep apps/ cog­ni­tive therapies/ biofeedback/ tDCS?

Imag­ine invest­ing $100 mil­lion to help accel­er­ate brain research and appli­ca­tions — how would you ensure that respon­si­ble devel­op­ment meets wise adop­tion?

Imag­ine a free annu­al brain check-up — who should take it, and how could it help prevent/ delay/ treat cog­ni­tive decline and Alzheimer’s Dis­ease?
