Brain on Fire: A Thoughtful Approach to Reshaping the Brain

Presenter: Eric Eastman

Location: Tundra E/F

In this presentation, we will be discussing how to stop the brain from escalating. We will incorporate how cognitive training can help restructure the brain to avoid it from "going into the red". We will also discuss the reasons why the brain has the traits of escalation, and how to teach de-escalation strategies from a non-invasive perspective. Finally, we will discuss mirror neurons, and how modeling proper behaviors to our students can give them the best opportunity to shape healthy behavior.
