Conferences

Eaton Arrowsmith staff members have organized the Neuroplasticity and Education: Strengthening the Connection conference for the past three years.

The conference covers topics like diet and brain connection, brain plasticity in children with learning disabilities, reasoning and the brain, mindfulness training, and much more.

While we will not be hosting a conference in October 2016 in order to move on to other projects, you can watch presentations from past conferences here.
