Sharp Brains: Brain Fitness and Cognitive Health News

Neuroplasticity, Brain Fitness and Cognitive Health News


Learning & Brain Conference in Boston

The next Learning & the Brain conference edition is April 26-29, 2008, in Cambridge, MA. We recommend it highly for educators interested in learning more about latest brain research findings and implications for teaching. See Detailed program.

Description: Cognitive neuroscience has discovered that the brain is not ‘hardwired’ from birth, but holds a remarkable lifelong power to change—a phenomenon called ‘plasticity.’ Positive or negative environments, exercise, nurturance, learning, and other experiences continue to change the brain throughout life.

These revolutionary findings point to new possibilities for ‘rewiring’ the brain to help overcome learning disorders and to enhance memory, learning, IQ and achievement in all learners.

– Brain-based teaching for children, adolescents and adults
– How stress and early adversity shape brains and later learning
– New insights into reading and math disorders and interventions
– Influences that change the brain and affect learning
– Cutting-edge environments, technology and insights into adult learning
– Techniques for treating mood, ADHD, stress and learning problems
– How the brain can be retrained to improve attention and memory
– The role of brain plasticity in resilience, empathy and teaching

    Please let me know how I can get a certificate of attendance sent to me ASAP. I attended the conference two months ago, and my district won’t reimburse me until I can provide them with a copy. They are getting after me for the end of the year bills. HELP!!!
