CityLibraries Townsville Hosts Barbara Arrowsmith-Young: The Woman Who Changed Her Brain
Barbara’s talk covers the personal and the universal. The personal is Barbara’s journey of discovery driven by her hunt for a solution to her own debilitating learning disorders leading to the integration of two lines of neuroscience research. The universal is that we all have a brain and by furthering our knowledge of how our brain shapes us through mediating our understanding of the world we can gain insight into our functioning and that of others. And most promising, that through our growing understanding neuroplasticity, we now have the knowledge to develop treatments to shape our brains. It is a journey of understanding and transformation. This talk is supported by readings from Barbara’s Internationally best-selling book, The Woman Who Changed Her Brain.
