Three years ago I had the opportunity to present our work at Advanced Brain Technologies to the attendees of the Neurotechnology Industry Organization Conference in Boston. You meet the most interesting people at these events. One standout from this gathering was a fascinating woman named Dr. G, Chief Brainiac behind The George Greenstein Institute, and one of the brainy minds behind Inventio!Brains.
Since Boston we’ve kept in touch through the social network and industry events like the Sharp Brain Virtual Summit. I’ve grown increasingly curious about the lens Dr. G sees the world through bridging between neuroscience and the arts, so I’ve invited her to join me as a guest on the Sound Brain Fitness Teleseminar Series tomorrow evening to explore her work.
You can learn more about this event below. Registration is free. I hope you’ll join us for what I am sure will be a fun and informative hour.
Spatial Awareness, Emotions and Memory
Some call it cognitive mapping. Some call it spatial memory. Whatever you call it, be sure to recognize and practice the strategic use of your hippocampal networks for dynamic, whole brain attention, memory and growth!
Drawing on decades of research and teaching of applied neuroscience and spatial mapping practices to artists and designers, Dr. Greenstein shares her insights on training spatial awareness, emotions and memory and the “What, How, When and Where” value distinctions between using stimulus reward and strategic mapping practices for gaming.
In this talk, Alex and his guest, an expert in applied neuroscience and “knowledge transfer” Dr. M. A. Greenstein will explore 3 big ideas impacting your brain health and ed/psych practices:
• Cognitive Mapping and Landmarking is the best kept secret for promoting good brain health practice through your lifetime
• Active Observation and Mindful Attention are key for promoting Cognitive Mapping and Landmarking
• Cognitive Mapping and Landmarking are encoded, stored and used again by visual and spatial strategies found in performing arts training as well as online gaming
