Brain Health Across the Lifespan: A Workshop

Project Scope:

An ad hoc committee will plan a two-day public workshop exploring issues related to brain health throughout the life span, from birth through old age.  The public workshop will feature invited presentations and discussions.  The planning committee will plan and organize the workshop, select and invite speakers and discussants, and moderate the discussions.

Workshop presentations should explore the following questions:

·       What are accepted definitions of brain health and resilience?

·       What are the key elements to measure status of brain health and its resilience across the life span?

·       What additional research questions can be addressed to increase our understanding of brain plasticity throughout the life span?

This workshop will also set the stage for future work. 

A proceedings of the presentations and discussions at the workshop will be prepared by a designated rapporteur in accordance with institutional guidelines.
