Novel technologies to assess consciousness and enhance personhood of non-communicative individuals
Quality of life and definitions of death are often based on the concept of personhood – a status given by one human being to another as a result of their relationship and successful interaction.
This presentation will cover recent research of enhancing the quality of life of non-communicative persons and their caregivers by using novel technologies to reveal and elicit signs of their personhood.
Patients who are diagnosed with a brain tumour are now living 200% longer, and with better quality of life, than they were just ten years ago.
The Brain Tumour Program at The Neuro is one of the largest and most comprehensive brain tumour research and treatment programs in the country.
The goal of the Brain Tumour Research Centre is to develop and fund translational research to identify new, promising agents and strategies in the laboratory and to ensure that they are brought quickly to the patients who need them.
