Here Dr. Doty speaks at the Mind and Its Potential 2012 conference. Not long ago, science had the notion that the capacity of the brain was fixed. We had what we were born with and past early adulthood, it was all downhill. However, the science of neuroplasticity has completely changed all that. Your brain is like a muscle – your mind can be trained to improve intelligence, learn new skills, be kinder, be happier and be more content. For 10 years now, Mind & Its Potential has been at the forefront of this amazing new frontier of science. It is a conference like no other – it brings together world-leading scientists, psychologists and educators, as well as ordinary people doing extraordinary things.
