How do we continue to learn throughout our lives? Why is change so hard? How can we manage our emotions to make the best decisions? Amazing new imaging technology allows scientists to answer more questions than ever before. A lot of the research could lead to useful ideas, yet most of us lack the opportunity to explore what it might mean for us. This 12-week study group sets out to do just that. Each week will focus on a different neuroscience research topic, such as: learning and memory, happiness, handling emotions, changing habits and addictions, the aging brain and brain health, understanding relationships, and managing stress. Your discussion leader for the week will help us explore the topic and share ideas on practical applications. There is no book, but you will need access to email and a printer for the weekly articles. Join us in learning more about how our brain works – and using that knowledge to improve our everyday lives. This study group meets for 12 weeks, starting 9/11/18.
