Issues such as depression, anxiety, substance abuse, loneliness from social isolation, and cognitive decline in adults have been major factors.
Harris Eyre, MD, PhD and Zoltan Sarnyai, MD, PhD are two researchers working in the field of brain health. Prof Harris was trained by Prof Zoltan at JCU Townsville and both men are pursuing breakthroughs to advance brain health care. This research will provide an opportunity for innovation and progress to grow global Brain Capital that will lead to greater health justice for all.
