Will we soon have an “annu­al brain check-up” — and what may it look like? Under what con­di­tions may spe­cif­ic brain training/ enhance­ment meth­ods work? How can we best har­ness both human neu­ro­plas­tic­i­ty and arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence (AI) to thrive in the 21st Cen­tu­ry? Which com­pa­nies, tech­nolo­gies and solu­tions are gain­ing the most trac­tion so far, and what are some best prac­tices for appro­pri­ate use?
