Their conference - Limitless! Augmentation of Brain Function - will take place from September 19-21, 2018 at the SwissTech Convention Center in Lausanne, Switzerland. The event will explore the latest findings in cognition augmentation and the future of brain enhancement.

It's no longer science fiction

The augmentation of brain function is fast becoming a reality in our daily lives. Moving beyond clinical applications - such as treatment of neurodegenerative diseases - the augmentation of brain function now increasingly proposes enhancements for quality-of-life. These could be related to sensory, motor or cognitive brain functions or even our mood and emotions.
