Brain Wonders

Workshops and Seminars for Teens. 

Adolescence is an incredible and amazing period in the development of the brain! During the teenage years the brain is highly plastic, it is growing and developing new pathways all the time in response to experiences, there is a wealth of growth in the synapsis of the pre-frontal cortex, the different areas of the brain begin to integrate, new and more complex skills become a possibility, social interactions increase hence the opportunity to cultivate empathy, and so much more… Well let’s just say it’s really wonderful! In the Brain Wonders Program teenagers learn about the amazingness of their brain, what neuroscience has discovered about how it works, communicates and makes sense of the world, how we learn, what emotions look like in our brain, the importance of maintaining a healthy brain, and the mysteries that are yet to be understood by science.
