Invitation to an open lecture "Building a Better Brain"
Neuropsy Lab and new Master's program "Science of Learning and Assessment" invite you to an open lecture by Dr. Marie Arsalidou "Building a Better Brain".
The brain is a beautifully complex, fascinating organ. We know more about the brain now than we did at any point in human history, and yet there are still many questions that remain to be answered. Research shows that the brain changes with learning and neuroscience provides an empowering message on the potential of the developing brain. This seminar will spotlight some of the research in developmental and cognitive neuroscience and highlight how everyone can make positive changes in their brain by making positive changes in their actions, thoughts, and emotions.
