Abstract

Developments in neuroscience have made the brain a central concern of much biomedical inquiry. Figuring out the neural processes that govern consciousness is, for some, one of the last frontiers of scientific research. But for an increasingly ageing population there are more mundane concerns about slowing or halting the brain's decline. In this science café three experts will offer differing perspectives on our current understanding of the brain and how it functions. They will explore how well we understand the brain and how we can treat its many disorders most effectively, how we can arrest the brain's decline in ageing and how we can improve the brain's performance for particular purposes.

These and related questions will be explored in conversations between the panellists and with the audience. Questions and contributions are always welcome, and no question is invalid.
