I’m pleased to announce two upcoming live webinars on learning and brain health.  As usual, there is no charge for these webinars, so please register today and join us to get the latest from the brain experts!

Dr. Paul NussbaumBrain Health Across the Lifespan

On June 6, you’re invited to learn about “Brain Health Across the Lifespan”with our returning guest, Dr. Paul Nussbaum.  While years of science maintained that neurogenesis does not occur in adult humans, current research indicates otherwise. If the human brain can generate new brain cells in adulthood, an entire new frontier of discovery and opportunity emerges.  This webinar is at 10am PT (1pm ET). 

Dr. Nussbaum is a board-certified clinical psychologist specializing in neuropsychology and a Fellow of the National Academy of Neuropsychology and American Academy of Clinical Psychology. 

Dr. Marty BurnsThe Science of Learning

On June 18, Dr. Burns will be back with “The Science of Learning,”a webinar about the potential of neuroscience to profoundly impact education. Educators are just beginning to discover how differences in brain organization underlie different learning capacities, and how altering the organization of the brain can dramatically increase the ability to learn.  The science of learning has guided the development of targeted neuroscience-based learning technologies to enhance underlying memory, attention, processing and sequencing abilities and proven to quickly and efficiently accelerate learning in many student populations at all grade levels.  This webinar is at 9am PT (12pm ET).

Dr. Burns is a neuroscientist who specializes in the development of language and the brain, current research on how the brain learns and factors affecting learning, and how understanding the science of learning can change our perceptions of what goes on in the classroom. She is Adjunct Associate Professor at Northwestern University and a Fellow of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.
