Surviving change: A neuroscience perspective
Our minds, which evolved to predict future outcomes to ensure our survival, are always anticipating how something will play out. Sometimes these predictions come true, but many times they don't. These expectations and predictions can trigger a span of destructive emotions ranging from irritation, and anger to shock. Throughout this class, we will be dissecting the complex science behind neurological reactions and managing change. I will give you scientifically proven tools to affect change and reverse stress's mental, physical, and emotional symptoms. We will discuss thought habits, why placebos work, and the science behind "The Belief Effect" and how examining our belief systems can help us persevere in the adversity ahead of us.
