      Hi @jhorsnall,

      that is an interesting question as each day more and more people are diagnosed with dementia. We have not yet developed replacement brains and unfortunately not even fully understood the causes of dementia which restricts our ability to develop treatments cures and prevention medicines. Maybe thats something you could look at working on when you leave school…
