From the time of the Glorious Age of Egypt, neurological function has been a source of fascination in those with the wherewithal to observe and contemplate. Imhotep was, in fact, the first to document his obsession with the implications of lesions to the brain and spine. He introduced the concept of triage in his observations, contemplations and formulations. Pythagoras theorized that the brain was the seat of the mind and thought, shaping Greco-Roman thinking. IbnSina was the greatest thinker of the Golden Arabian Age, discussing the relationship of the obvious physical, inobvious metaphysical and immortality. Great minds over the millennia have refined our thinking to lead us to our conference here in Dubai. Some of those great minds will be discussed and the evolution of therapies for the brain and mind will be presented in an historical overview, with a view to a potentially revolutionary future in neurotherapeutics. We are on the verge of a New Era in the treatment and prevention of the most worrisome affliction of mankind: Dementia.
