Leaders from community organisations working in the areas of autism, learning difficulties, schizophrenia, Alzheimer's disease, speech pathology and more, recently met with researchers at the ARC Centre of Excellence in Cognition and its Disorders (CCD) to share their common vision and shape future research directions.

The workshop provided a unique opportunity for CCD researchers to learn more about the practical needs of children and adults with cognitive health issues, and for community and industry leaders to discuss the potential impact of evidence-based research findings and treatment protocols for meeting the needs of the people they serve.

CCD Director, Professor Stephen Crain, said the day enabled the Centre to "showcase some of the ways in which experimentation and technology can lead to future impacts, based on the methods of cognitive science".
