    The 2015 Sharp­Brains Vir­tual Sum­mit will fea­ture over 40 of the world’s top sci­en­tists, inno­va­tors and experts work­ing on better ways to mon­i­tor and enhance brain health, har­ness­ing a range of emerg­ing non-invasive neurotechnologies.

    The Sum­mit, now in its sixth year, pro­vides a vibrant and con­ve­nient forum to dis­cover emerg­ing trends and to dis­cuss most press­ing top­ics, grouped this year around 4 major themes:

    1. How to mea­sure and improve out­comes that matter
    -- Mea­sur­ing progress with real-life out­comes, beyond cog­ni­tive tests
    -- Prac­ti­cal ways to improve brain func­tions such as self-regulation, impulse con­trol, work­ing memory
    -- Focus­ing brain/ men­tal health on early diag­no­sis and treatment–including pre­ven­tion to engage the wor­ried well
    -- Clar­ify tar­gets where improve­ment can be sig­nif­i­cant, and sci­en­tific para­me­ters for inter­ven­tions to work
    -- Chronic care man­age­ment, from the per­spec­tives of the payer/ provider and the individual

    2. How to engage key stake­hold­ers and influencers
    -- Brain lit­er­acy ini­tia­tives to inform, inspire, empower the pub­lic and front-line professionals
    -- Part­ner­ships with big pharma, and adop­tion of inter­ven­tions into the insur­ance and health systems
    -- Reg­u­la­tory paths for med­ical and non-medical applications
    -- Spe­cial groups: large employ­ers (includ­ing Army’s “cog­ni­tive dom­i­nance” work), kids with learn­ing differences

    3. How to har­ness emerg­ing non-invasive, poten­tially ubiq­ui­tous neurotechnologies
    -- Given con­sumer­iza­tion trends, how to deliver engag­ing user experiences–and estab­lish indi­vid­ual cog­ni­tive base­line standards
    -- Best prac­tices work­ing with appli­ca­tions lever­ag­ing EEG, qEEG, VR, TMS, tDCS, web-based and mobile platforms
    -- Develop track-and-treat mod­els for brain health based on sensor-based wearables
    -- Improve dri­ving safety through sen­sors to detect impair­ments –sleep, fatigue, dis­trac­tions– and assist drivers
    -- Home-based brain health monitoring

    4. How to spur, val­i­date and com­mer­cial­ize innovation
    -- The patent land­scape: how to pro­tect intel­lec­tual prop­erty, antic­i­pate mar­ket trends, pre­view com­pet­i­tive moves
    -- Promis­ing role of 21st Cen­tury Cures leg­is­la­tion to fast track research & development
    -- Who pays (and why): explor­ing Go-To-Market approaches and busi­ness models
    -- Get­ting into chan­nels: the rise of Apple App Store and Google Play; well­ness dis­trib­u­tors, asso­ci­a­tions, health ben­e­fits providers, clinics
    -- Pri­vate and pub­lic sources of investment Show less
