Join Us...for a program that will ask and answer questions about the human mind as quotes from Science and leaders in the field are shared from across the country and around the world. Data from University and Hospital research centers will be highlighted along with summary data from the history of medicine in psychiatry, social science and neuroscience. A variety of healthcare disciplines have played significant historical roles in the collection and dissemination of knowledge surrounding the brain and its function. This workshop will take a look at the 5 pathways to understanding and share the current research findings and facts about the most common debility among the geriatric population. These insights will dispel common myths and reveal the importance and complexity of diagnostic testing. Care-givers around the world share the same concerns. We will discuss the prevalence of depression and explore the elements that have been proven to enhance 'quality of life.' An address on the drug warnings and look at our imbedded medical presumptions can serve to enlighten professionals as they move into the future of healthcare where cognitive loss has increased in prevalence. As science is learning to read minds, we are witnesses to the new frontier of Neuro-ethics and are learning much about how little we really know.


  • Obtain summary data from research presented at National and International Dementia Conferences.
  • Recognize 'quality of life' as a key factor in developing interventions for the chronically ill and cognitively impaired
  • List six criteria utilized by neurologists to diagnose Alzheimer's Disease
  • Correlate the prevalence of depression to cognitive loss and early onset dementia diagnoses
  • Discuss baseline considerations for treatment of depression as a comorbidity
  • Differentiate Alzheimer's disease from multiple 'other' types of dementia
  • Define neuro-plasticity
  • Establish a global perspective of current trends in Alzheimer's care and intervention
  • Recognize Neuro-ethics as a new frontier in medical science
