In September 2015, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) briefly discussed their initial findings that could allow for a deeper understanding of and possible treatment for individuals living with traumatic brain injury (TBI) or other brain pathologies. Today these individuals have little to no effective treatment options for their neurological conditions. On Thursday September 10th 2015 DARPA’s Restoring Active Memory (RAM) program presented their earliest findings in St. Louis at the Wait, What? A Future Technology Forum.
Program manager Justin Sanchez briefly discussed the aims of a few different programs that together may improve understanding and treatment options for those suffering from memory deficits caused by TBI’s or other neurological diseases.
