In a classic research-based TEDx Talk, Dr. Lara Boyd describes how neuroplasticity gives you the power to shape the brain you want. Recorded at TEDxVancouver at Rogers Arena on November 14, 2015.

Our knowledge of the brain is evolving at a breathtaking pace, and Dr. Lara Boyd is positioned at the cutting edge of these discoveries. In 2006, she was recruited by the University of British Columbia to become the Canada Research Chair in Neurobiology and Motor Learning. Since that time she has established the Brain Behaviour Lab, recruited and trained over 40 graduate students, published more than 80 papers and been awarded over $5 million in funding.
Dr. Boyd’s efforts are leading to the development of novel, and more effective, therapeutics for individuals with brain damage, but they are also shedding light on broader applications. By learning new concepts, taking advantage of opportunities, and participating in new activities, you are physically changing who you are, and opening up a world of endless possibility.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at ted.com/tedx

We can educate the brain, but there is also communication with people, and the most important thing is how you communicate with people and build your brain

Jesus Christ destroyed my Life with Great Diseases, Poverty, Loss of Confidence and ability to Stand Up for Myself, Loss of Comon Sense, Loneliness, and Great Sufferings. No Prayers got Answered to Me. I know that God always hated me by bring me here to Suffer. God Hates and Punishes all the Good People , Remember That. God Favours Assholes.

Is she talking about left side of the brain or right side of the brain ? Change the structure of nuerons. A human has two brain as one brain divided by left or right. Maybe left side of the brain is worked by Mother and right side of the brain is worked by Father. It is like either by eveil spirits or by a snake like reptiles. Probably the snake should be chosen and run by controlling the human. Everybody's brain is going to go out of secure life which most of them have lived taking it for granted. Left to right. Right to left. Somebody has to be left. Switching the position and that is not so easy task to do. It takes lots of work, study, experience, memory and time itself. listening to her speech, maybe now is the best timing to do it like the micro SD chip reads the head. Cheap micro SD chip or Expensive micro SD chip. It costs you like the entire lifehood. So just get rid of the old micro SD chip out of the certain person's brain. Welcome to the new micro SD chip of the world.

"Build the brain you want." Too cheesy after just stating that you can't learn every type of skill as effectively. But neuroplasticity is remarkable though. You should check the pictures of the brain after someone lost a finger. You can see the brain mass for 5 fingers being redivided by 4, so growing bigger per finger.

I do not think I heard anything substantially mind changing in this talk. Professor Boyd does a great job of mapping intuitive ideas about brain development, learning, and treatment onto the vocabulary of neuroscience. Other than this rewording of commonplace ideas, I do not see any new ideas at work.

I learned from this video that I don't learn much from ted conferences. The speakers seems like those clever people but when they open it they don't say much. Do we have to pay something in order to have the rest of he message ? A book is definitely a better media to learn something.

You are so fscking right. After suffering a severe stroke I went and became a mental health proffesional. (Now I´m preparing for my certification)The brain is constantly developing, changing. With every simple cooking recipe you can CHANGE YOUR BRAIN. So take the opportunity and learn a new skill or become an expert in the field that you care about. NOW!

As there are lower rates of natality in the some areas of the globe and referring to aging industrialized countries, this Ted talk should be sent to all those tech companies that set an age limit up to 35 to learn ux front page. Because on the date of your 36th birthday by the CEOs and hr "experts" they believe your brain is "old"= "no more plasticity in the brain". So as society is more with 45 to 80 year Olds than babies maybe now those people left jobless and homeless at 50 stand a chance to working in a fair and balanced humanitarian society. How can CEOs change their brains? Can j bezos and gates change their brains? To promote a new balance a new way to exist, a new concept of living happy, because money has ceased to exist as in their "old" brain?

I love theories about learning and pedagogy, but related to these topics I see almost nothing interesting coming from this talk, as well as from neuroscience in general. For me these people are talking for themselves, most of the time telling that their old convictions -- which were clearly counterintuitive for anyone -- were wrong. These people make a huge propaganda of their academic positions and their expensive imagery machines, but at the end of the day they come with assertions that are ridiculously trivial: Some people need more than 10000 hours, others less... some children can thrive in traditional education settings... My conclusion: up to now intelligent teachers don't need machines and neuroscientists to make their pedagogic techniques evolve.
The science of neuroplasticity is the most fascinating discovery 💚.... if you believe that help me by sub
