In this panel discussion chaired by Sue Giddens from the Neurological Foundation, our Christchurch-based neurological experts will provide scientific and clinical perspectives of the transition from normal ageing to pathological ageing, leading to brain disorders such as Alzheimer's and dementia, Parkinson's disease and other neurodegenerative diseases. 

Our panel will answer a wide range of questions including: Is an ageing brain a declining brain? Should we "use it" or lose it? What are the risk factors for brain disease as we age? What are the real future possibilities in brain reserach? What are these buzz words 'proteins', 'stem cells' and 'biomarkers'? Could we one day stop Alzheimer's disease in its tracks?
