The Neural Network

What is intelligence really? What does a neurosurgeons life looks like? How we can regulate appetite with an electrode in the brain? Join us in English and Danish as we dive into the newest research with leading experts across the world.

Many of you are studying for exams – or if you’re lucky, you’re done. Regardless, I’m sure you appreciate your capacity to remember things. People with Alzheimer’s disease are not as fortunate – particularly when it comes to their ability to retain recent information.  In this episode of The Neural Network, Dr. Francisco Ponce and I discuss the novel phase III clinical trial, where stimulating brain electrodes are used to improve cognition in Alzheimer’s Disease.
