Brain Health: Where Do We Go From Here?

Join us for a discussion on the societal implications of neuroscience, from early childhood education to public health.

How is neuroscience reshaping society? What can policymakers learn from recent advances in sensory research? What’s missing in our conversations about brain health? Where do we go from here?

The last few years have been a wakeup call for the importance of brain health. The Covid pandemic had lasting impacts on the brain development of young and old alike. At the same time, with increasing rates of neurodivergent diagnoses and growing recognition of neurodiversity, brain and sensory health have become part of a wider conversation about accessibility throughout our societies, especially with respect to childhood development.

Join Swissnex and Swiss research center The Sense for a participative discussion on the implications of neuroscience on education, policy, accessibility, and more.
