Understanding the human brain and the diseases that can affect it is one of the greatest scientific and philosophical challenges we face today.
Coordinated by the European Brain Council, with the support of over 200 patient, clinical and industry organisations, Year of the Brain 2014 will highlight the needs of the millions of Europeans currently affected by brain disease, while raising awareness of the importance of everyone nurturing and protecting their most vital asset – their brain.
The Year of the Brain has 3 objectives
- To educate society about how to nurture and protect the brain and prevent brain disease.
- To improve care and treatment access for those affected by brain disease.
- To increase investment in brain-related R&D for the benefit of future generations.
