[Perspectives] Brain Diaries: two hemispheres of interest

“Understanding the brain and its diseases is one of the key challenges of the 21st century”, said Professor of Clinical Neurology Christopher Kennard at the launch of Oxford University Museum of Natural History’s Brain Diaries. “I’ve said that is like climbing Everest, but I don’t even think we’ve got to base camp”, Kennard explained, citing the growing “problem of dementia: the longer we live, the more likely we are to develop Alzheimer’s”. Incorporating research from more than 50 neuroscientists, Brain Diaries explores the passage of a healthy brain from conception to old age.
