THURSDAYS AT 3:00 PM
Neuromyths & Neuroplasticity: Navigating the Brain, Mind, and Health Connection
Neurodiversity, Memory & Risk/Protective Factors Related to Brain Function
Attention, Cognitive Load & Consolidation: Increasing Memory Through Attention, Practice & Sleep
Mindfulness & Cognitive Flexibility: Transforming Your Mind, Brain & Life
PRESENTED BY: Dr. Kristen Betts, PhD, Drexel University, School of Education
You are invited to a 4-week series to discuss current and emerging research about the brain, mind, and memory. We 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 memory and metacognition, stress, sleep, nutrition, exercise, and community. Throughout the four 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.
