Guest Keynote: How Adaptable and Flexible Are Our Brains? The Impact of Modern Technology
21 July, 2014 (17:00 - 17:45)
Professor Peter Schofield is Executive Director & CEO at NeuRA - Neuroscience Research Australia - one of the largest independent centres of research on the brain in Australia. The institute aims to accelerate discovery and translate this knowledge to improving health and reducing the burden of brain and nervous system disease. Prof Schofield will explore the issues associated with brain function, memory and neuroplasticity. The human brain once thought fixed and hardwired is proving to be highly adaptable and flexible. In today’s digital age, how might we harness neuroplasticity to improve health outcomes? Equally, is modern technology altering the way in which our brains work? These questions are important now but will feature even more so in the future. Harnessing neuroplasticity is thus critical for the healthy development and use of our brains and a key issue for the changing environment in which we live.
