Professor Meera Agar, Chair, ImPaCCT:NSW – My
focus area is looking at cognitive issues and the impacts on the brain from advanced
or chronic illness. The types of illnesses that are covered in
this area are people living with dementia, people who have brain tumors, and also a condition
called delirium. The study we’re currently doing is using a
scientific framework to try and unpack the potential benefits of medicinal cannabis,
including botanical forms of medicinal cannabis, on symptoms, especially in
advanced or chronic illness.
