VR & Brain Health: a NeuroTech Frontier for Aging

Mar 12, 2022

10:00am – 11:00am CT

As the global incidence of neurodegenerative disorders continues to escalate, this panel will discuss how VR technology provides new methods to improve assessments and to deploy sophisticated therapeutic solutions directly relevant to our aging population.
Dr. Walter Greenleaf (Neuroscientist, Stanford University), Dr. Allison Sekuler (Managing Director, Centre for Aging & Brain Health Innovation), & Chris Brickler (CEO, MyndVR) explore the convergence of medical breakthroughs and future applications of virtual reality technology. Learn the latest in neuroscience research and how the coming wave of Virtual Reality technology will impact medicine, clinical care, and personal health and wellness — and how these innovations will be critical to improving brain health and advancing senior care.
