During this episode, you will learn about: [00:00] Episode intro and what’s in for you in today’s episode [00:50] Meet Ramon David, MSc, and founder of the Brainfirst Training Institute [02:15] How Ramon got into the applied neuroscience field and his expansions [11:38] Raman's advice on how to approach the influx of information about the brain from a critical-thinking perspective  [18:28] Ramon’s two secrets that help him to keep his passion going  [23:04] Practices that help Ramon to start new projects and bring them to fruition [29:53] The disciplinaries in applied neuroscience and what is geared towards  [40:51] The biggest challenges that Ramon has overcome and the lessons he learned [45:46] Ramon’s plans on what he’s currently working on in 10 to 20 years [50:06] Ramon’s recommendation to those pursuing or wanting to shift their career to neuroscience [57:09] Episode wrap-up and calls to action Notable Quotes Finding new things to achieve in an area you’re interested in will help keep your passion going. When you relate what you’re doing to help people, it will get you excited The purpose of neuroscience is not living in theoretical knowledge; it’s learning new things and putting them into practice, helping others, and accelerating their results to get them to live a more fulfilling and joyful existence every day Having a deadline can help you start new things and bring them to fruition If we don’t have a deadline or self-imposed deadlines that we can oppose, then we’re unlikely to move toward completing a project. A big part of creating a deadline is committing other people Having something tangible or concrete that is finished in your head will help you make progress and keep your energy up. So many people are trying to get more in their day and find more time, but energy and being able to focus, concentrate, pay attention and be efficient are more important. To allow something to emerge from the things you’re interested in, you have to experiment and try a range of different things. It’s not until we collect a whole bunch of different things, collect a whole bunch of different experiences, and draw from what we know about ourselves and what we’re interested in that we can grow in the things we want to do.

During this episode, you will learn about the following: [00:00] Episode intro and what's in for you in today's episode [01:21] Meet Thomas Feiner, BCIA, BCN, QEEG-D from the Institute of EEG-Neurofeedback in Munich, Germany [02:52] Neurofeedback, what it is, how you can use it, and for what purposes [11:33] Rewarding the brain and providing the environment to help it learn optimally [13:04] How quickly the brain can find the optimal state and examples of what has worked for Thomas's clients [15:51] What has changed in Neurofeedback since Thomas started and what he's seen now [19:28] Top three conditions and evidence-based information on what Neurofeedback provides [20:48] Career opportunities in Neurofeedback and how you can get into the field [23:25] The background that you need to get into Neurofeedback [26:09] The uniqueness of the programs that Thomas offers in Neurofeedback  [30:24] Thomas's mission and work in educating children about Neurofeedback [34:34] What Thomas discovered in meditation and mindfulness and what they do in Neurofeedback [40:10] Thomas's vision and plans in the next 10 to 30 years in the neurofeedback space [45:03] Thomas's advice to people who want to pursue a career that is not in their locality or in Neurofeedback [49:25] How to reach out and connect with Thomas Notable Quotes The brain is a learning organ, and it's designed to learn; it's a huge learning machine with great potential, and you can learn every day in your life till death. Profound changes appear by just rewarding, enhancing, and evolving tiny changes in the brain through Neurofeedback. In Neurofeedback, we only reward the brain for doing something good and better than before; there is no punishment. You've to be patient and open-minded; Neurofeedback works differently for everybody. Neurofeedback is a career that opens many doors, and you can add it as an effective add-on without forgetting what you have done already. Children's brains are always waiting for input, and we cannot feed it with just knowledge; we need to also feed the brains with empathy, excitement, and what the brain can do. When you teach clients to change their quality of life, you make the world a better place.

The Science of Magic with Assoc. Prof. Anthony Barnhart, PhD. Part I.
Who hasn't been interested in Magic and mesmerized by the Magician's performance, at least at some point in their life? Who hasn't tried to uncover the secrets of the Magic show? How to use your curiosity and passion to drive your career success?  Welcome Assoc. Prof. Anthony Barnhart, PhD, a cognitive psychologist and the Chair of the Department of Psychological Sciences at Carthage college in Wisconsin, USA! Dr. Barnhart went on a path from being a professional Magician to becoming a cognitive psychologist, studying the Science of Magic! Tune in to Episode #13. Part I. of the Neurocareers podcast to uncover the world of deception from the "Sleight of Mind!" Stay tuned for Part II of this Neurocareers podcast episode! During this episode, you will learn about: [00:00] Episode intro, what’s in for you, and a quick bio of the guest, Anthony Barnhart, PhD [01:10] Where Dr. Barnhart is joining us from, and a bit about his backstory [05:24] How Dr. Barnhart’s research on Magic helps students develop intellectual curiosity [09:43] A brief history of the existence of Magic [16:28] Meaning of the “Science of Magic” and its rationale [18:06] Magic isn't only focused on psychology but also technology [19:55] Some psychological vulnerabilities that magicians have explored [27:18] How different theories on Magic have been applied in the Science of Magic research [32:05] The future of the Science of Magic & the benefits magicians can get from the results [36:05] Dr. Barnhart’s views on the future of the use of technology by magicians [40:16] A bit about the Science of Magic Conference and what can be presented [43:55] Wrap-up to this first part of the talk Notable Quotes Intellectual curiosity is an important part of the recipe for success in graduate school and many different careers. People who study wonder often talk about the experience of it, starting with the mismatch between their expectations about the world and what their senses bring to them. The consequence of experiencing wonder is exploration, curiosity, and trying to seek out explanations for what you witnessed. The value of the Science of Magic is that it allows us to mine psychological insights from a group of people who have been neglected by science for most of their existence. Magicians are informal cognitive scientists who should have a hypothesis of how the mind works to develop techniques to deceive those minds. Magicians are usually 10 years ahead of the public regarding emerging technologies. A magician's goal is to make all the technology entirely invisible.

Informal Cognitive Science with an Artist and Magician Jeanette Andrews. Part I.
Innovation? Technology? Illusions? Meet and greet Jeanette Andrews - an informal cognitive scientist and one of the most innovative illusionists in the world today! Jeanette is using modern technologies, including AIs and cognitive science principles, in her Magic shows!  We are all interested in making the impossible possible and figuring out how to make things happen. As humans, we’re extraordinarily great in many ways, and we have a deep-seated, wildly complex understanding of what objects are like and how they sound. We know it even when we’re unconscious of it. Magic is all about taking into account an infinite number of things we’re constantly sensing, remembering, and sometimes pseudo-remembering to create a working experience, space, or process. Knowing what they are, using some of them, and finding perspective gaps we are aware of. In this episode, Jennette shares the art of magic and the interception between science and magic! Tune into the Episode #17. Part 1. conversation with Jeanette Andrews to hear about her career path and advice on how to succeed in your chosen career. Stay tuned for Part 2 of this Neurocareers podcast episode! During this episode, you will learn about the following: [00:00] Episode intro and what’s in for you in today’s episode. [01:50] Meet Jeanette Andrews, an artist, magician, and researcher. [05:53] Jeanette's advice on how parents can look at their children’s gifts from a different perspective and help foster their pursuit of knowledge. [13:36] What triggered Jeanette's interest in magic and the things that fascinate her in that space? [16:04] The type of magic that Jeanette was interested in when developing her skills. [20:01] Why Jeanette got into symbol magic and why it was highly recommended for her at the time. [24:45] Jeanette's perspective on learning magic from books and mentors and not from the internet. [27:26] When Jeanette realized that there is so much psychology and cognitive science involved in her career and how she started learning more about it. [35:45] The options available for people to learn and get in the interception between science and magic. [41:33]  Ending the show and call to action. Tune In For Part 2! Notable Quotes You can put together a career and a life that works for you and makes you happy, and it doesn’t have to fall into a tightly defined space. You have to want something enough to work for it and reinvest in your education in it. When you have something you’re passionate about learning, your passion and curiosity can open doors for a career field. Always learn the foundational techniques and build from them. You can learn a lot of magic from the internet, but most good magic is still genuinely in books and mentors. About the Podcast Guest Jeanette Andrews is an artist, magician, and researcher. Andrews’ work focuses on developing interactive magic and sensory illusions via performance, sculpture, installation, and audio. She is currently an Affiliate of metaLab (at) Harvard and an artist in residence at CultureLAB LIC in New York City. Illusion is Andrews’ life’s work, and her performances have been praised by the Chicago Tribune, PBS, and the New York Times. Andrews is also an acclaimed speaker, presenting with Cooper Hewitt, Chicago Ideas, Fortune 500 companies, universities, and conferences across the country. She has been an artist in residence for High Concept Labs in Chicago and The Institute for Art and Olfaction in Los Angeles. Her research-based process centers around phenomenological philosophy, contemporary cognitive science, and physics. Her work highlights astonishing aspects of everyday life via moments of the seemingly impossible to create a lived phenomenology. Themes of pieces have included invisibility, impossible objects, the relationship between scent and magic, unseen communication, and how illusions can construct reality. Andrews works closely with museums and galleries to recontextualize magic within the cultural arts and explore this craft as a performance art medium. She has presented numerous commissioned works with the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, including her 2020 work “Invisible Museums of the Unseen,” which was later commissioned as a site-specific work for the Quebec City Biennial. Further site-specific works for numerous museums and galleries include the Elmhurst Art Museum, Birmingham Museum of Art, and International Museum of Surgical Science.

Informal Cognitive Science with an Artist and Magician Jeanette Andrews. Part 2.
Every human has an innate desire to try to do the impossible. Whether it’s a desire to have superpowers, superhuman feet, move to an advanced degree, relocate to a new country by themselves, or do things that seem unachievable. Magic has an interesting lens on that! It aims to create simulated versions of what looks impossible. It provides a tool to make something impossible look real. In this episode, we continue our conversation with Jennette Andrews, one of the most innovative illusionists in the world! Jeanette is discussing the field of Informal Cognitive Science and the relationship between machine learning, magic, and surprise. Find out how Jeanette used the art of magic to explore the questions posed by Alan Turing of whether machines can exhibit intelligent behavior that cannot be distinguished from that of a human! During this episode, you will learn about the following: [00:28] The most unexpected thing that Jeanette discovered about human sensation and perception. [05:32] How Jeanette was introduced to the technology and how it developed into her newest exhibition, the use of AI. [18:49] The surprising things that Jeanette learned from the reactions of the people who came to her magic show. [20:12] Jeanette plans to perform and show her magic performances to people in different places. [22:26] The process of generating ideas, where Jeanette gets her creative juices and what it takes to move from idea to fruition. [27:26] Trusting your intuition and how it turns to instinct through trial and error. [29:32] Doing the impossible and how to use magic as a tool to create simulated versions of the impossible.   [32:22] How to reach out, connect and learn more about Jeanette. Notable Quotes To move from idea to fruition, you must start doing the thing and see what happens. Magic deals with certainty; it deals with what we process as factual information or not and how those things change. Trust your intuition, keep stuff coming in and maintain your freshness all the time. Every human has an innate desire to try to do the impossible. About the Podcast Guest Jeanette Andrews is an artist, magician, and researcher. Andrews’ work focuses on developing interactive magic and sensory illusions via performance, sculpture, installation, and audio. Jeanette is currently an Affiliate of metaLab (at) Harvard and an artist in residence at CultureLAB LIC in New York City. Illusion is Andrews’ life’s work, and her performances have been praised by the Chicago Tribune, PBS, and the New York Times. Over 27 years of specialized study and technical training in parlor and sleight of hand magic has now afforded her a distinct perspective on crafting experiences with nuanced psychological underpinnings, the direction of attention and inattention, creating surreal visuals, and designing/building objects that function completely differently than they appear. Jeanette's research-based process centers around phenomenological philosophy, contemporary cognitive science, and physics. Andrews works closely with museums and galleries to recontextualize magic within the cultural arts and explore this craft as a performance art medium.

NeuroMeditation with a Clinical Psychologist Jeff Tarrant, PhD, BCN. Part 1.
What comes to your mind when you hear the word "meditation"? Is it relaxation or rather an introspection and contemplation? Or maybe it is focus and concentration, spiritual practice, or anything else we just heard someone says is "good for you"? It turns out that the term "meditation" might be simply an umbrella encompassing various techniques to self-regulate our mind and nervous system. Moreover, different types of meditation affect the processes within the brain in different ways. This means that the approach "One size fits all!" is not applicable when selecting a meditative practice. In fact, you want to choose a specific meditation type that suits your individual goals, needs, and demands of your nervous system. So, what meditation is right for you? Meet and greet Dr. Jeff Tarrant - a clinical psychologist, neurofeedback specialist, experienced meditation practitioner, and founder of the NeuroMeditation Institute! Dr. Tarrant will help you clarify what meditation is, explain how it affects your brain, and guide you in choosing the meditation that supports you! Also, you will learn some simple steps to get into the field of meditation and learn how to self-regulate! Last but not least, you will find out how your passion and interest in life can drive your career toward success in neuroscience and neurotechnologies! Stay tuned for the second part of the show with Dr. Tarrant!   During this episode, you will learn about the following: [00:00] Episode intro and what’s in for you in today’s episode [01:40] Meet Jeff Tarrant, Ph.D., BCN from the NeuroMeditation Institute, Eugene, Oregon, USA [04:46] How Jeff became aware of the need for him to contribute to helping other people and to do the things he is doing right now [09:06] What ignited Jeff's interest in meditation, and how he got into the meditation space [12:29] How Jeff brought Neurofeedback and meditation together and built the concept of NeuroMeditation. [16:55] Different types of meditation and the brain changes that are associated with them [28:13] Jeff’s recommendation on how to start practicing meditation in simple, engaging, and effective ways   [36:35] Ending the show and call to action. Tune In For Part 2! Notable Quotes Neurofeedback was created for meditation to allow us to get to a deeper state of consciousness. There are many ways to meditate, and different ways of meditation influence your brain differently. Attention and intention are the keys to different types of meditation; when you change how you are directing your attention and intention, it changes how the brain is engaged. Meditation (focus) and meditation (open monitoring) tend to go together, but they are different. The most common theme that goes through most types of meditation and mindfulness is that you’re not supposed to be thinking about yourself. Meditation is about your state of consciousness, not about how you’re sitting or what you’re doing, and because we’re all different, the way someone meditates may not fit for you. Instead of trusting what somebody else says and thinking that the answer, listen to yourself, try different things, and see how it feels. If it helps you get into the right state of consciousness, keep it; if it doesn’t, throw it out. We all start from somewhere; pick something, try it, reflect on it, keep your expectations low, and develop it over time. Consistency is more important than trying to squeeze in more time.   About the Podcast Guest Dr. Jeff Tarrant is a licensed psychologist and board certified in neurofeedback.

Does meditation mean sitting in a lotus (leg crossed) position with your eye closed and thinking of "nothing"? That seems daunting for somebody taking the first steps toward practicing mindfulness! What if there were much simpler and more effective ways for you to get on a path of self-regulating your mind? Meet a greet Dr. Jeff Tarrant - a clinical psychologist, neurofeedback specialist, experienced meditation practitioner, and founder of the NeuroMeditation Institute! Dr. Tarrant has been successfully teaching people how to meditate for many years! He will share with you how to start meditating and do it in a way that makes sense to you! Also, you will learn how neurotechnology can help improve your meditation skills!  Last but not least, you will learn about the future of neurotechnologies and the most unexpected things about the human mind Dr. Tarrant discovered over the years of his meditative practice and neurofeedback! During this episode, you will learn the following: [00:00] Episode intro and what’s in for you in today’s episode. [01:59] Different conditions and types of meditation that Jeff recommends for people to work with. [11:08] The value of Neurofeedback in learning how to meditate and overcoming the difficulties on the way. [17:23] How technology development is helping the development of Neurofeedback and NeuroMeditation fields. [22:36] How Jeff sees the future of NeuroMeditation with the development of technology in the next 10, 30, and 50 years. [27:17] Jeff’s future plan for NeuroMeditation and the work he is doing now. [31:18] Where Jeff gets the spirit of innovation from, how he develops it, and finds his beginnings.  [33:22] The most challenging part of Jeff’s career; how he overcame this challenge, and the lessons he learned from the process that now helps him. [36:21] Jeff’s recommendation to people who want to follow his footstep and help people with meditation and mindfulness practices. [38:21] The most unexpected thing that Jeff learned about the human brain in the course of his work in meditation, Neurofeedback, and NeuroMeditation.

[47:20] How Jeff sees a world where people are meditating and doing it as a normal daily practice 10 to 20 years from now. [48:48] Ending the show.   Notable Quotes The meditation style that is the hardest for you is probably the one that you need the most; if the meditation style is easy, your brain knows how to do it, and you’re not developing anything. If you want to grow your brain and develop certain skills, you have to do something difficult that you’re not good at. Mindfulness is good for anxiety and stress because you’re learning to step out of the situation and look at it more objectively and not become attached to it. Everybody knows that meditation is good for them, but the percentage of people who stick with it is very small. Our brain waves influence each other whether we know it or not; we can influence the people around us for good or bad.   About the Podcast Guest Dr. Jeff Tarrant is a licensed psychologist and board certified in neurofeedback.

Neuroeducation with Kristen Betts, EdD, Mariette Fourie, DEd, and Michelle Miller, PhD. Part 1.
Neuroscience influences many areas of our life and informs us of the best strategies to utilize the power of our brains. This is particularly true for the field of education, where the knowledge about our nervous system transforms existing teaching practices and helps develop evidence-based approaches to successful learning. Meet and greet three outstanding specialists in Neuroeducation - the field born on the intersection between neuroscience, psychology, and education: Kristen Betts, EdD, Mariette Fourie, DEd, and Michelle Miller, PhD! In this Part 1 of the podcast dedicated to Neuroeducation, you will learn what Neuroeducation is about. You will also get familiar with the programs that help teachers and instructional designers support their work with neuroscience-informed, evidence-based practices. You will also hear three amazing stories about careers that all began in different fields but came together to spread knowledge about how our brain supports learning. Stay tuned for Part 2 of this attention-grabbing podcast to hear examples of the most current misconceptions about learning and the brain, the biggest challenges in the field of Neuroeducation, and its future perspectives! During this episode, you will learn the following: [00:00] Episode intro and what’s in for you in today’s episode. [01:23] Meet and greet our today’s guests and learn a bit about their workplace. [04:26] What is neuroeducation and its origins? [06:18] Dr. Fourie’s backstory and journey to neuroeducation. [10:13] Dr. Miller’s inspiration in neuroeducation and her area of expertise. [14:10] Dr. Betts’ story of getting into neuroeducation. [21:04] Early challenges in neuroeducation and current advancements in bridging the gap between neuroscience and the science of learning. [32:41] Common misconceptions in neuroeducation. [37:26] How educational institutions are applying neuroscience in teaching and learning. [42:00] Examples of scenarios where neuroeducation practices have helped students learn better. [49:57] Ending the show and calls to action.   Notable Quotes Focused attention is necessary for learning. One of the early challenges of neuroeducation was that there needed to be an evidence-based approach to learning. A teacher does more experiments than a scientist will do in their lifetime A teacher’s conceptualization of knowledge greatly affects the learners' epistemological beliefs. Misconception about learning and memory creates a wrong educational approach. You might have the best course, but it means nothing if the students are not interested. You must learn how to involve your mind in a classroom.

Neuroeducation with Kristen Betts, EdD, Mariette Fourie, DEd, and Michelle Miller, PhD. Part 2.
"Learning becomes transformational when you understand how your brain processes the information," says Dr. Mariette Fourie (DEd), one of our podcast guests today. So, what are the best practices that help you learn? Should you take notes on the computer or by hand? You will find it out from our other podcast guest, Dr. Michelle Miller, discussing the misconception about note-taking. You will also discover what it means to be uncomfortable learning new information and the value of a productive struggle from Dr. Kristen Betts. This and much more you will find in Part 2 of the Neurocareers podcast about the field of Neuroeducation from the top professionals in the field! Stay tuned! During this episode, you will learn the following: [00:00] Episode intro, and what’s in for you in today’s episode [01:39] The main challenges associated with the development in the field of neuroeducation, working examples, and how they are being solved at the moment [12:26] The field of neuroeducation and the impact it’s making in the next ten years and what will become possible that is not possible today [19:02]  Recommendations on how people from various fields can contribute to the field of neuroeducation and the possibilities of getting certifications.  [25:06] Evidence-based practices that can help improve your learning outcome from the neural science perspective [30:32] Ending the show and what to expect in the series Notable Quotes Educators must look at how they assign work and make feedback valuable to enhance learning. You can only change what you are aware of; what you go in and change makes you much more aware of where to refine and expand your work. Refining makes learning more enjoyable than rewriting or revising. Academic misconduct arises from students not knowing how to read and write in the discipline. Leaning becomes transformational when you understand how your brain processes information. As a student, the more you practice, the easier it’s for you to transfer what you are learning. Productive struggle is critical; the brain loves to predict. If you’re working hard all day, you need to sleep because that is when your brain is active in terms of memory. It’s not about just studying and practicing; sleep and well-being play a critical role. About the Podcast Guests: Find more about our guests and connect with them!

Redefining disorders of consciousness with Caroline Schnakers, PhD
Research shows that about 40% of patients with disorders of consciousness (DOC) are misdiagnosed: often thought of as unconscious, many are, in fact, either conscious or minimally conscious. Such misdiagnosis severely impairs the treatment and recovery of patients with DOC. However, the field of DOC is rapidly developing. One of the major game-changers for it is neurotechnology. Meet and greet Dr. Caroline Schnakers - Assistant Director of Research at Casa Colina Hospital in Pomona, California, USA. Dr. Schakers is a world-renown expert in DOC. She redefines this field to offer help and provide hope to patients with DOC and their families. Dr. Schnakers's goal is to support physicians and other clinical personnel involved in the care of patients with DOC so that they can offer their patients the best possible diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment. In this episode of the Neurocareers podcast, Dr. Schnakers illustrates the DOC spectrum with an example from her practice with DOC patients. Dr. Schnakers also discusses the main misconceptions about the DOC, such as "Sleeping beauty," "There is only coma," and others. She provides insights about using neurotechnology to advance the field of DOC. Last but not least, Dr. Schnakers shares important career advice that can be very helpful to those at the crossroads of choosing their scientific career. Stay tuned!  During this episode, you will learn the following: [00:00] Episode intro and what’s in for you in today’s episode. [01:42] Meet Caroline Schnakers, Ph.D. from Casa Colina Hospital, Pomona, California, USA. [02:50] The type of work Dr. Schnakers is doing and her shift from diagnosis to treating the disorder of consciousness. [06:04] What are disorders of consciousness and the clinical difference between a vegetative and conscious state? [13:38] What inspired Dr. Schnakers into the disorders of consciousness space, and what has helped her to work there for so many years? [16:24] The most common misconception around disorders of consciousness. [20:16] Misdiagnosis of the unconscious state and why it isn’t easy to detect signs of consciousness.  [23:02] What helped Dr. Schnakers to be such a good specialist in disorders of consciousness [26:28] The change that is happening in the field of disorders of consciousness and the involvement of neurotechnology in the process [34:16] What do we know now about patients with disorders of consciousness that we didn’t know ten years ago? [16:55] The challenges that are becoming more prominent as the field of disorders of consciousness evolves. [43:34] The common knowledge and technology gap between experts and clinicians in Europe, the States, and other parts of the world.  [45:18] What was challenging for Dr. Schnakers when doing research and looking for new information in the field? [48:10] Dr. Schnaker's most unexpected findings throughout her research career of studying patients with disorders of consciousness. [52:03] Where Dr. Schnakers sees neurotechnology in the next ten years and how it will help clinicians with the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of consciousness. [54:37] Dr. Schnaker’s plans for her research and the work she is doing. [56:41] Dr. Schnaker recommends how to get into the path of helping people with disorders of consciousness and neurotechnology. [59:38] Dr. Schnaker's advice on achieving the impossible in neuroscience and disorders of consciousness fields. [01:01:53] How to reach out and learn more about Dr. Schnakers. Notable Quotes It’s difficult to detect signs of consciousness; sometimes, it can misdiagnose the unconscious state. Peer and peer learning and mentorship learning are important in developing your expertise. If a technology applies to severe brain injury, it will also apply to moderate brain injury and all types of brain injury. It’s possible to have a patient that is conscious to some point and not have any signs of consciousness at the bedside. We’re in an evidence-based era, and based on the evidence, you can make the treatment work. Suppose companies are interested in evidence-based, then in the future. In that case, we will be able to have good products for clinicians, and patients will be treated better and earlier when we can do more for their recovery. It’s not always easy but always think out of the box.

Language is strictly related to our perception of ourselves and the differences in the individual representation of what a language is, must be, or ought to be. Everything starts from our brain; everything in our brain is very important and interconnected. We’re our brains. Writing with our hands is useful for developing neural cells and allowing us to use our brain. Technology ought to be a friend of mankind, and the impact of technology should be positive, not invasive. It should help us understand what happens in our brain. Our ability to write and draw with a pencil should remain an activity daily; it’s very important for our neuro cells development. Languages can be written, signed, or spoken; as humans, we have a limited view of what language should be.   About the Podcast and Its Host The Neurocareers podcast is brought to you by The Institute of Neuroapproaches and its founder - Milena Korostenskaja, Ph.D. (Dr. K) - a neuroscience educator, neuroscience research consultant, and career coach for students and recent graduates in neuroscience and neurotechnologies: https://www.neuroapproaches.org/ Also, find your support in the Your Support Station podcast with Dr. K here: https://www.neuroapproaches.org/podcast-2
