The Brain Mind Forum is a new layer of enterprise that sits between business, the public and academia. The BMF looks to be a catalyst for positive change, by expanding public understanding of the brain, integrating new neuroscientific developments in to new commercial practices and by reinvigorating academic research and discussion.
Objectives of the Brain Mind Forum
The primary objective of the Brain Mind Forum is to provide a Common Platform to bring to bear the skills and knowledge of many different aspects and disciplines to help build our understanding of the brain and mind.

OBSERVING THE BRAIN & MIND
FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF COMPUTING
Explore how the burgeoning knowledge of computing hardware and software sheds light on the symbiotic relationship between the trillions of neuron networks, glia and other physical components of the Brain (hardware) and the mass of electrochemical signals, electromagnetic fields and waves (software) comprising the Mind.
Apply our growing experience of transmitting, storing and processing information to the way in which the brain receives, remembers and interprets information to elucidate meaning and knowledge.
Demonstrate how the Brain and Mind develops neural system to establish permanent memory structures capable of recognition, recall, and retrieval; and the possible reasons for memory degradation and ways of mitigating or solving these problems.
LEARNING AND EDUCATION
Review our burgeoning knowledge of information retention, computing and cognitive neuroscience and psychology to design life long learning and education systems to benefit from the computing and information revolution.
CREATIVITY AND CONSCIOUSNESS
Better to understand the relationship and processes between ‘intelligence’, ‘thinking’, ‘invention’, ‘creativity’ that builds into ‘conscious awareness’. Develop some acceptable descriptions and definitions of these terms.
Study the processes of decision making and how we can learn to develop better management and planning procedures
EVOLUTION AND EPIGENETICS
Investigate, compare and contract the evidence for evolution and transgenerational epigenetics in the advance of civilisation.
Identify the questions facing cognitive neuroscience in the 21st Century, and plot the progress being made to solve them.
