Science & Art of Changing Your Brain

4-Week Workshop Series

The “Science & Art of Changing Your Brain” 4-week workshop series discusses current and emerging research about the brain, mind, and memory. The workshop sessions will share research on neuroplasticity that shows how the brain physically changes over a lifetime through experience, learning, injury, and disease.

Each week will focus on key topics related to brain function and health. You will learn how to identify protective factors and control risk factors to preserve cognitive abilities. We will also cover important research on the connection between brain health, learning, metacognition, relationships, stress, sleep, community, and memory. Throughout the 4 weeks, you will engage in individual/group activities, test your knowledge on prevalent neuromyths, and learn strategies you can immediately apply to support cognitive flexibility, mindfulness, and a healthy brain.

  • Week 1: Neuromyths & Neuroplasticity: Navigating the Brain, Mind and Health Connection

  • Week 2: Neurodiversity, Memory, Risk & Protective Factors Related to Brain Function

  • Week 3: Attention, Cognitive Load & Consolidation: Increasing Memory Through Attention, Practice & Sleep

  • Week 4:  Mindfulness & Cognitive Flexibility: Transforming Your Mind, Brain & Life
