Well, 2011 has passed into 2012 and we're still pulling ourselves out of the depths of recession, which means you have to be extra careful when you're choosing companies to invest in or buying a new home or MLS Newmarket condominium. Since the crash of 2008 investors have been scrambling to find the latest sure bets. We know now that mortgage futures are a bust, but what about oil? Or civilian space travel? Smart investors know that the real potential lies in technology, and neurotech is at the cutting edge of this industry. To learn more about neurotech and the investment opportunities it represents, look over the content of this website.
Nerotech, which is short for neurotechnology, involves using science and technology to improve, evaluate, repair, and even replicate the functions of the brain and nervous system, which is the most complex and mystifying system in the human body. Neurotechnology has actually been around for a long time, but it's only been in the last two decades or so that advances in computing power have allowed scientists and researchers to make really significant leaps in their understanding of how the brain and nervous system functions. Barrie dental clinics follow along with the medical advancements.
Neurotechnology encompasses three core areas of research. 1) drugs for treating conditions and diseases of the brain, such as epilepsy or ADHD. 2) devices for replicating, facilitating, repairing, or improving brain and nervous system function, such as the deep brain stimulators designed to treat Parkinson's disease and virtual reality devices designed to trick the brain into thinking simulations are real. 3) diagnostic devices for mapping and studying the brain, such as the MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) and CT (computed tomography) scanners that can highlight areas of brain activity and detect tumors.
If you want to see what neurotechnology has to offer the world, specifically investors like you, you should attend the annual Neurotech Investing and Partnering Conference or read the NeuroInsights weblog. In short, those who hold patents on devices and drugs which can cure or even treat neurological diseases like brain tumors and Alzheimer's disease, which are running rampant in the developed world, stand to make enormous amounts of money. You may not be able to design the devices yourself, but neither can the scientists and doctors fund their own research projects. You need one another.
