2019 PUBLIC LECTURES
The Carolina Center for Neurostimulation was pleased to present two public lectures in association with the 2019 conference. Dr. Flavio Frohlich, Director of the Carolina Center for Neurostimulation, presented Speaking the Language of the Brain, and Ama Marston of Type R presented Type R Mindset - Transforming Challenges & Creating Conditions for Transformative Resilience.
Speaking the Language of the Brain
June 4th, 5:30-6:30pm | Kirkland Auditorium, Koury Oral Health Sciences
Flavio's goal is to revolutionize how we treat psychiatric illnesses. His vision is that understanding cortical state dynamics will enable the development of novel non-invasive brain stimulation paradigms that directly target pathological network dynamics. Flavio is convinced that such rational design of neurotherapeutics will open the door for individualized, highly effective brain stimulation in psychiatry. Flavio is passionate about combining different methodological approaches to scientific problems and hopes to establish the field of network neuroscience. When Flavio is not busy in the lab (ever?), he enjoys being with his wife Anita and his children (and future lab members) Sophia, Galileo, Amalia, and Leonardo.
Type R Mindset - Transforming Challenges & Creating Conditions for Transformative Resilience
Change and failure as well as an increasing number of global challenges from a growing stress epidemic to climate change are increasingly a part of our day to day. What are the mindsets and skills that allow us as individuals, scientists, business leaders, organizations or communities to turn these challenges into opportunity, innovation, and positive impacts? In the talk award winning author Ama Marston looks at those learning to thrive in today's turbulent world and shares research across neuroscience, psychology, business, and current affairs from her recent book Type R: Transformative Resilience for Thriving in a Turbulent World.
Ama Marston is an internationally recognized leadership and business with purpose expert and is the the author of the Type R: Transformative Resilience for Thriving in a Turbulent World. She has worked on five continents with global leaders like Mary Robinson, first female President of Ireland, and Joseph Stiglitz, Nobel Laureate economist, FTSE Index and Fortune 500 companies, the United Nations, Oxford University, and NGOs.
