How modern environments are impacting our brain activity

How does the technology we use affect our brains? Does our income level have a relationship to our brain waves? Find out these answers and more from the impressive Dr Tara Thiagarajan, a scientist and entrepreneur who’s not your typical academic. With a PhD in Neuroscience from Stanford University, she currently holds roles as Chairperson, Chief Scientist and Managing Director of various companies and is also the Founder of Sapien Labs, a research organisation dedicated to understanding the diversity of brain dynamics across humanity.

Dr Thiagarajan’s work focuses on new analytical approaches to brain signals to drive understanding of how environment influences human brain diversity and, in turn, economic outcome. Far from a complex academic presentation, this will be a highly relevant and exciting event, perfect for all those living and researching within modern society. It is sure to inspire and will provide attendees with fresh perspective of how the lives we lead are connected to our brain activity.
