Workshop Synopsis

Neuroplasticity is the ability of our brains to change from stimulation including what we do and even what we think. Targeted Neuroplasticity Training uses special exercises which target the mental processes critical to Executive Function. The result is faster mental processing speed, better focus and improved working memory. Thousands of people have experienced significant improvements in performance as a result, including students. This is because the exercises make the brain work progressively harder causing it to respond by increasing post synaptic receptors and stimulating Long Term Potentiation which is critical to learning and memory.

In this workshop students will learn how the brain works to make this possible as well as a new mental performance model which will help them understand how the things they do impact their lives. The best part is that students will experience one of the Targeted Neuroplasticity Training exercises themselves which they can keep to use on their own! Students will also learn about a wonderful opportunity to be part of a Student Inquiry and Research Project focused on minimizing the achievement gap using Targeted Neuroplasticity Training.
