Real Change: The Thrilling Science of Neuroplasticity and How We Can Use It

For CU Boulder Faculty & Staff:

The human adult brain was once believed by neuroscientists to be "fixed, ended, immutable," but recent advances have revealed this three-pound organ to be remarkably dynamic.

Meaning where and how we spend time, who we relate to and what we practice truly matters. It shapes our brain!

On Tuesday, May 2, Christina Congleton will present a workshop on contemporary brain science, covering research to which she contributed during her time at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School.

The audience will also have opportunities to explore key questions raised by the science of neuroplasticity: What am I practicing? Are there practices I would like to give up? Begin? The presentation will end with examples of practices that create change from the inside out. 

Congleton is a leadership and human-development specialist, consulting to individuals and organizations interested in next-generation leadership capacities such as mindfulness, emotional agility and adult developmental psychology.

She holds a master’s degree in human development and psychology from Harvard University. She also is a certified Integral Coach through New Ventures West and a licensed Immunity to Change facilitator.
