Today KG staff had the privilege of listening to Neuroscientist Professor Selena Bartlett, a group leader in addiction neuroscience and obesity at the Translational Research Institute at the Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation, as well as a research capacity building professor in the School of Clinical Sciences, Faculty of Health and Behavioural Sciences, at the Queensland University of Technology, and Sheryl Batchelor, Director and Founder of Yilyapinya Indigenous Corporation.
This morning's lecture was on 'Grasping the Power of Neuroplasticity and Using Neuroscience in our Daily Lives'.
Brain health is everyone's business, and we need to treat the brain to healthy conversations. The brain has untapped potential, with the ability to grow and change overtime with specific and repetitive actions. Stress impacts our brain health and when we understand the importance of the brain's plasticity we can apply practical neuroscience tools to totally transform our mindset and our lives. If we learn to manage our stress, grow our mindset, and embrace change, we will become more innovative and creative and improve our performance both individually and in teams.
The second session was on the brain health of students, and how improving our awareness around brain health as educators is crucial for the health and wellbeing, and performance of all students.
A big thank you to Selena and Sheryl for educating us on brain health and fitness and giving us some simple strategies that can totally transform our lives.
