The Brain

Can neurogames treat aging brains?

Arc Fusion hosted 100 people at Z Space in San Francisco to celebrate the launch of Arc Fusion. UCSF neurologist Adam Gazzaley gave a talk and a demonstration about his groundbreaking research into using neurogaming to treat diseases of the brain like Alzheimer’s. He and his lab demonstrated his “games” live.
