MIND MATTERS:
CONVERSATIONS ABOUT YOUR BRAIN

Join us and fellow Mind Science supporters for monthly online “conversations” with neuroscientists. Enjoy a half hour conversation followed by a 15-minute Q&A as we explore topics ranging from creative uses of conflict in our lives to new research breakthroughs for victims of stroke and traumatic brain injury; from tips on navigating the experience of children with learning differences to methods of harnessing mindfulness to realize the richer, more meaningful lives we all want. Experts lecture, you learn.

Come join the best minds in town!
