Brain studies continue to churn out results that help our scientific world better understand the components that lead to life altering diseases such as Alzheimer’s Disease. With the continued support from not only higher education, but also the support from the non-profit world filled with billionaires such as Microsoft’s very own Paul Allen, information will continue to pour in and help identify ways to both improve the lives of our ageing while redefining what it means to age.
