The Human Brain – the most complex structure ever studied – can store thousands of terabytes of memory and has the unique ability to ‘re-wire itself’. Award-winning motivational speaker and entrepreneurial scientist Dr. Sheldon will talk about Neuroplasticity – an exploration of our amazing plastic, ever-changing brain. Neuroplasticity is the newest frontier in the neurosciences and, as more and more tools become available, the arena has the potential to bring about delays, treatments, and recovery for a myriad of brain dysfunctions, ranging from pain, to dementias, to addictions, strokes, and even obesity. These are just a few of the topics that will be covered in this talk. Because of Dr. Sheldon’s clear and unique teaching style, no science background is needed.
