Neuroscience in the Workplace

This one-day workshop provides an overview of why neuroscience is, and will increasingly be, important in the workplace. It will help participants to place neuroscience in context and give them an accurate understanding on the myths and realities of how neuroscience is likely to inform and change the world of work in the future. The workshop can include the use of Electroencephalography (EEG) technology to allow participant’s to ‘see’ their own brain at work and to learn how to take more conscious control of this.
