Are we facing a “Neurological Epidemic”?

TED-logo-1

From 2008 this TED talk by Gregory Petsko, Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Chemistry at Brandeis University in Boston, looks at the numbers on neurological disease.

And Prof. Petsko’s talk is not only relevant in the US but also in Europe. A national audit  in 2011 found that there were 2 million people in the UK living with a neurological condition (excluding migraine).

The problem is clear, and its also clear that we need smart and effective solutions.
