Gray Matters: Your brain,your life and brain science in the 21stCentury (Episode #2012)

KQED World: Sat, Mar 9, 2013 -- 3:00 PM

What if you could use sadness to make you more creative, erase bad memories and wipe out stress, keep your brain fit into your 90s, and drastically reduce your risk of Alzheimer's and memory loss? The plasticity and capability of the brain has never been better understood. New research is revealing compelling findings that will change the way we think, interact and plan throughout our lives. As longevity and at the same time mental health issues are on the rise, our ability to impact the brain is also increasing. Yet these are the very early days, as some put it, of understanding "those three pounds of meat inside our heads". How can we apply the new brain science to our own lives, and how is neuroscience in the 21st century going to impact us all? Join ABC news correspondent Juju Chang and a panel of distinguished thought leaders and scientists to explore the brave new world of neuroscience and what it means for you and your family. The event, which took place in conjunction with Stanford's Reunion Homecoming Weekend, was taped Saturday, Oct. 6, 2012 in Maples Pavilion.
