The Social Brain: Better Brain Health At Work

The Social Brain
09 Jun 2016
17:00 - 20:00
Customs House, Library, 31 Alfred St, Circular Quay NSW 2000

How do workplace environments affect what goes on in our brains?

Craft gorgeous textile neurons with Neural Knitworks and join a panel of brain and mind experts to discover current scientific research into the social brain.

What can we do at work to fire up the neurons in our brains and keep ourselves learning, emotionally healthy, intellectually challenged and engaged? What neuroscience signals suggest we would benefit from developing a new approach to work? When might a career change be in order? 

Craft neurons from 5pm, panel discussion from 6pm.
