About Future Vision 2019 Series: Dementia Design and Neuroscience Workshop

FUTURE VISION - 2019 SERIES: Dementia Design and Neuroscience Workshop

The workshop will bring together basic neuroscientists and those working to improve designs for individuals with dementia.

The goal is to bridge the divide between basic neuroscience studies on how the brain represents space with applied research and work focussing on the challenges physical spaces present to those with dementia. The desired outcome is a cross-fostering of insights based on both basic and applied approaches to the use of space.

Individuals with an interest in dementia care, particularly as it relates to the design and use of environments, are encouraged to attend. There will the opportunity for questions and discussion following each talk.

Please note: Lunch and coffee/tea will be provided for all attendees.
