MINNEAPOLIS – The American Academy of Neurology, along with theAmerican Brain Foundation, is accepting video submissions for the 2015Neuro Film Festival®.

The Neuro Film Festival is a perfect vehicle for people affected with brain disease to be a voice to raise awareness of why more funding for research is needed,” said Christine E. Phelps, Deputy Executive Director for the American Academy of Neurology Institute and American Brain Foundation.

This site was inspired by my Mom’s autoimmune dementia.

It is a place where we separate out the wheat from the chaffe, the important articles & videos from each week’s river of news. With a new post on Alzheimer’s or dementia appearing on the internet every 7 minutes, the site’s focus on the best information has been a help to many over the past 15 years. Thanks to our many subscribers for your supportive feedback.

The site is dedicated to all those preserving the dignity of the community of people living with dementia.
