Sophisticated brain-imaging tools allow researchers to study the brain and revolutionize the understanding of how we learn. As a result, today we know more about learning than ever before, which provides great opportunities for training and development professionals to harness new insights and apply this new knowledge to advance the field.
Neuroscience can be complicated and over-simplification can easily lead to misleading neuromyths. It’s well worth L&D practitioners delving deeper into neuroscience by attending this event which elaborates on neuroscience in the context of L&D.
Rachel Wu, Assistant Professor at the University of California Riverside, www.rachelwu.com.
Rachel Wu is a postdoctoral fellow in Brain and Cognitive Sciences at University of Rochester and received her diploma in Fine Art and Design in London. She has had many exhibitions worldwide, and her paintings were recently displayed at the URMC Miner Library in a solo exhibition. Rachel's researchat the University of Rochester’sBabylab uses brain activity (EEG) and behavior (eye-tracking, manual responses) to investigate how we learn from infancy to older adulthood. Her latest study teaches older adults how to learn like infants (via painting) to promote healthy cognitive aging.
