As we age, our brain has a harder time dealing with distractions. Brains get stronger by eliminating distractions rather than pushing to overcome them.
The Center for BrainHealth, in partnership with the Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute at The University of California, Berkeley, presents the annual Reprogramming the Brain to Health Symposium.
The Symposium – whose intended audience includes cognitive scientists, physicians, psychologists, researchers, and the like – brings together the most distinguished brain scientists to share and learn up-to-the-minute breakthroughs in brain research.
The Symposium, held alternately at the Center for BrainHealth and the Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute, also bestows the Charles Branch BrainHealth Award. The Award, acknowledging a cognitive neuroscientist of true renown, is named after Charles Branch, M.D., a leading research scholar, neurosurgeon, and humanitarian who trained with legendary neuro-icons Drs. Wilder Penfield and Theodore Rassmussen. A special archival Branch-Penfield collection tracing the history between the brilliant pair is on permanent display at the Center and an online archive of photos, articles and memorabilia is currently under construction.
