Traumatic Brain Injury, TBI, can affected people from any age and any lifestyle. In this panel discussion, some of the leading researchers and clinicians will discuss the promising paths that research is leading to and how this could affect diagnosis, treatments and recovery.

Brain and Machine: what does the future hold?
Chair: Associate Professor Karen Waldie
In the movies, humans’ (brains) and machines are normally on opposite sides of the fight, but in the research world it’s a different story. What if machines provided a way of helping dementia patients remember to take their medications, or help someone with a movement disorder? We bring together the researchers and clinicians that are trying to make these extraordinary things happen. Join us to hear about their research and what the future could hold.
