Title: Olympian minds: can we train our brain for success in sports and other fields?
Date: Wednesday, 18th July 2012
Our brains have an element of plasticity and are able to change as a result of influences from the environment. But how can training--in sports and other areas--regulate this ability to change? Professor Heidi Johansen-Berg (University of Oxford Centre for Functional MRI of the Brain) will be discussing brain plasticity, its importance and its limitations with Professor Semir Zeki (UCL Neuroesthetics) and other academics from UCL.
