Just finished our latest #PopUp #Neuroscience broadcast. We hope this helps you #gettoknowyourbrain!

Post has shared content
Join us tomorrow for our live broadcast on #failure  and how our #brain  interprets, deals with at reacts to it.  Q&A will be enabled so you can submit questions as they pop up.  We will reply to as many as possible at the end of the short lecture. #popupneuroscience  
Get to know your how your brain interprets, deals with, and reacts to failures and then learn to be better at it.

Learn about the neuroscience of failure including the physiological effects of failure, a fear of failure, and how failure is used by the brain to adjust for the future and promote success. Explore failure at a personal level through an experiential awareness exercise to map the physical and mental sensations and reactions associated with one of their own failures. Explore their automatic cognitive reactions when confronted with failure, learn how to sit in that uncomfortable space, and learn to choose more desired and productive reactions. We’re taught, formally and informally, to avoid failure at all costs, but that goes beyond our biological drive to use failure to better our future outcomes. This session aims to reconcile the fallacy of failure by creating both a theoretical and experiential context for moving toward rather than away from failure in order to ultimately move forward.

Usually every 3rd Wednesday of the Month, The Centre For Applied Neuroscience hosts Evenings With Coaches (this particular one needed to be moved to Monday, May 26th). These evenings are facilitated by graduates of the NeuroPsychoidiology Life Coaching Program. The facilitators will be sharing their passion and attempting to inspire questioning, exploration and/or action. We hope you can join us as we attempt to further our knowledge of our brains and ourselves.

NOTICE: There will be no Evening With Coaches for July & August, as we take the summer for other projects.

Upcoming Evening With Coaches will be facilitated by our director, Dr. Mandy Wintink, PhD and focus on how foods affect our mood and brain.
In addition to making healthy lifestyle choices we should be making healthy choices about our brains in order to provide a foundation for mental health, wellbeing, and longevity. Our brain gets much of its support and building blocks from the foods that we eat. Nutrients give rise to the production of neurochemicals, new brain cells, stress management, and fuel. By association, good moods, positive thinking, efficient decision making, and many more brain functions are all dependent on how we feed our brain. In this seminar Dr. Mandy Wintink will teach us some of the basics of good mood foods and how we can support healthier brains so that you CAN KnowYourBrain.ca.
