Mens sana in corpore sano…and vice versa (interview in Spanish)


La soledad es tan per­ju­di­cial para la salud como fumar 15 cig­a­r­ril­los al día” (La Van­guardia):

Respec­to al peso total del cuer­po, más bien pesa poco. Unos 1.400 gramos. Y sus dimen­siones tam­poco son para tirar cohetes: ron­da los 1.300 cen­tímet­ros cúbi­cos. Pero a pesar de su reduci­do tamaño, su reper­cusión sobre el ser humano es incal­cu­la­ble. En él reside, ni más ni menos, que la mente y la con­cien­cia del indi­vid­uo. Sí, hablam­os del cere­bro, Read the rest of this entry »

Explore the Future of Public Health & Brain Health with David Bartrés-Faz, PI of the Barcelona Brain Health Initiative

We’re hap­py to announce that David Bartrés-Faz, Prin­ci­pal Inves­ti­ga­tor of the new Barcelona Brain Health Ini­tia­tive, will be speak­ing at the 2017 Sharp­Brains Vir­tu­al Sum­mit (Decem­ber 5–7th).

The Barcelona Brain Health Ini­tia­tive (BBHI) is a new research project pro­mot­ed by the Insti­tut Guttmann, with the sup­port from mem­bers of Har­vard Cat­a­lyst and Har­vard Med­ical School, already recruit­ing over 3,000 healthy vol­un­teers (with­out med­ical diag­no­sis of neu­ro­log­i­cal dis­ease or psy­chi­atric con­di­tion) between 40 and 65 years old.

More Thumbs Up for 2012 SharpBrains Virtual Summit: NeuroSky, Institut Guttmann, Strategic North

The 2012 Sharp­Brains Sum­mit proved to be a high­ly reward­ing, enjoy­able and extreme­ly use­ful expe­ri­ence. The hands-on infor­ma­tion-rich work­shops are help­ing take our cur­rent efforts to the next lev­el” — Josep M Tor­mos, Research Coor­di­na­tor, Insti­tut Guttmann

The Sharp­Brains Sum­mit brings togeth­er lead­ers in all rel­e­vant cog­ni­tive fields from busi­ness to aca­d­e­m­ic com­mu­ni­ties, as well as pro­vid­ing a forum to address the evo­lu­tion of this emerg­ing indus­try. Because cog­ni­tive enhance­ment, fit­ness, and enter­tain­ment are rel­a­tive­ly nascent indus­tries, it has been dif­fi­cult to use tra­di­tion­al bench­marks to eval­u­ate its suc­cess and growth. Sharp­Brains is quick­ly becom­ing the “go to” resource for inno­va­tion and busi­ness insight. Alvaro and his team delve into a vari­ety of top­ics — both on macro and niche lev­els, mak­ing the Sharp­Brains Sum­mit the per­fect forum for dis­cov­ery and idea exchange “- Stan­ley Yang, CEO, Neu­roSky

I can­not rec­om­mend the Sharp­Brains Vir­tu­al Sum­mit high­ly enough. It’s a fan­tas­tic forum for knowl­edge shar­ing in the com­plex area of brain health pro­vid­ing access and dis­cus­sion with world lead­ers in the field. I found the vir­tu­al for­mat actu­al­ly enhanced the learn­ing expe­ri­ence and the short ses­sions focused the con­tent in an engag­ing way which is often lack­ing in oth­er tra­di­tion­al con­fer­ence set­tings” — David Coleiro, Part­ner, Strate­gic North
