Topic: "Neuroscience: The Importance of Understanding the Brain"
Date: Thursday, 4th February 2021
Time: 8:00AM to 9:00AM (Bangkok Time)
Suitable for: School administrators, teachers, counsellors, psychologists, allied educators, therapists, parents or anyone interested in the learning brain.
Our understanding of brain plasticity provides us with transformative insights into strategies for optimizing neurological performance. Because we understand on a first level the neurological origins of variations in human performance and achievement—and we understand the processes that govern and control brain change—we now understand how to advance the performance abilities of any individual, of any age, at will.
Our growing understanding of the relationships between human performance and organic brain health informs strategies for improving and sustaining that health, and for growing resilience to help assure a safer neurological passage across the childhood epoch of life.
We shall briefly review this science, then describe how it has led to new practical strategies for helping almost any child elevate their brainpower to a higher and safer operational level.
