Wonderfest: Neuroplasticity

Speaker: Experiences at different times in life may alter aspects of personality: Neuroplasticity

HopMonk Novato Session Room

*Tuesday January 31, 7:00 pm show

Experiences at different times in life may alter aspects of personality: appetite for risk, tolerance for delayed gratification, interest in music, etc.

Our brains seem to develop particularly rapidly during a staggered sequence of “sensitive periods” that stretch late into the second or third decade of life. Such periods of high neuroplasticity are ripe for specific types of learning; they are also susceptible to negative experiences that can lead to mental illness. Understanding sensitive-period brain plasticity will help us to improve education and personality development.

Our speaker, Dr. Linda Wilbrecht, is Professor of Psychology and of Neuroscience at UC Berkeley. Dr. Wilbrecht conducts research through the Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute, and she directs The Wilbrecht Lab.
