Luria Neuroscience Institute offers a series of one-day workshops on central topics of brain health and brain disorders. The workshops are open both to the general public and to mental health professionals. The workshops can be taken individually or in combination. Please see the list of one-day workshops below.
The aim of this workshop is to impart a clear understanding of “executive functions,” their relationship to the frontal lobes, and of the numerous ways in which they may become impaired across a wide range of disorders.
Memory is among the most essential mental faculties. It is also one of the most fragile.
The brain consists of two hemispheres, but how are they different functionally? What are their differences in development and in aging? How are they affected in brain disease?
Multiple neuropsychological skills drive reading, writing, and math performance as well as successful school behavior. In this engaging workshop, Dr. Ed Petrosky describes what these skills are and how strengths and weaknesses in these skills manifest in the classroom. He...
Our brain is our most precious possession. Our knowledge, our memories, our skills, our beliefs and our passions are all controlled by our brain. In fact, their sum total is the brain. But how does the brain work? Most of us use our brain and rely on it every moment of our lives without having the slightest idea of what is happening inside. But aren't you curious about the inner workings of your most precious possession?
The brain is our most precious possession; it is also one of the most fragile. Fragility is the price of complexity. Many things can go wrong with the brain already in utero, in early life, in midlife, and in aging. In this workshop we will offer a brief review of various afflictions of the brain in an accessible but rigorous way. The wokshop is suitable both for the professionals and for the general public.
The dramatic rise in the number of children being diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) has been described as a national medical emergency, with the latest estimates indicating 1 in 110 children will be diagnosed this year- more than with...
Babyboomers have also been known as the "in charge generation." They can also be called "the knowledge generation," for whom the brain is the most valuable possession. Now that the babyboomers are getting on in years, for millions of people the issue of brain aging is no longer a matter of abstract curiosity but a deeply personal matter. What happens to our brain as we age? What distinguishes health brain aging from failing brain aging? How to preserve, or perhaps even enhance one's mental powers as we age? These are the issues to be addressed in the workshop.
Today the advances of neuroscience are making an impact on diverse areas of human endeavor. Many of these applications were unheard of even a few decades ago. This is reflected in the rise of a whole new "neurolexicon": neuroeconomics, neuromarketing, neuropolitics, neurolaw to name a few. In this workshop we will review some of the emergent applications of neuroscience in diverse areas of human endeavor.
By the end of this course you will have gained the understanding and information required to apply emerging science and tools to enhance your own brain health and functionality across the lifespan. Course Description Summary: Information overload and longer lives...
