Following upon successful ventures in Halifax, Montreal, Cleveland, and Vancouver, we are very pleased to announce Brain Matters 5 in Arizona. Brain Matters is a broadly multidisciplinary conference and workshop with a diverse audience of clinicians and scholars and neuroscience, neurology, and neuroethics. The primary goal is to enable rich, productive, and collaborative exchanges to enhance understanding and improve practice. To this end, we will have no concurrent sessions – only topical plenary sessions with ample time for dialogue and networking.
