Want to See How Someone's Brain Works?

January 18, 2022

Do you ever look at someone and wonder, 'What is going on inside their head?' This is the question posed in one of the most popular TikTok trends happening today. While this phenomenon often highlights humorous video clips of people and animals doing ridiculous, silly activities, the question can be a common one for individuals and researchers. Thanks to some high-tech virtual reality capabilities, you can now see what's going on inside the human brain! This tour-of-the-brain activity is called "Brain Cave" and will take place at Bradley's 6th Annual Super Brain Summit in April.

This year's summit, titled "Digital Neuroscience Tools to Improve Education and Health," will feature Bruce E. Wexler, a professor emeritus of psychiatry and senior research scientist at Yale School of Medicine. He is also the director of the Neurocognitive Research Laboratory at the Connecticut Mental Health Center. In 35 years of neuroscience research, he has advanced the understanding of brain plasticity and been an international leader in developing computer-presented brain exercises to treat cognitive deficits in people with psychiatric illnesses.

This one-day conference is open to the general public and will take place April 8, 2022, in Bradley's Hayden-Clark Alumni Center. Continuing Education Units (CEUs) will be awarded to all LPCs, LCPCs, LSWs, LMFTs, LCPs, RNs, LPNs, APNs, PTs and PTAs who join. There are multiple viewing options available for participants. Additional information, including topical sessions, pricing and registration, is available here.

Some media in Bradley University's current print, video and online materials was acquired before the COVID-19 pandemic. Media acquired after the pandemic began was done so in compliance with Bradley's COVID-19 safety protocols at the time. The ongoing safety of our faculty, staff and students is of the utmost concern during these unprecedented times.
