The Woman Who Changed Her Brain ASB Theatre, Aotea Centre Until recently, theories of neuroscience have posited that the brain can not be changed but the emerging field of neuroplasticity is challenging this view. In The Woman Who Changed Her Brain (2012), Canadian Barbara Arrowsmith Young reveals how she developed a series of innovative brain exercises to conquer her severe learning disabilities. She speaks with Michael Corballis about overcoming major brain dysfunction and some of the clinical mysteries and fascinating stories she has encountered in her research.


Saturday, May 12, 2012 10 to 11 a.m. 2012 Auckland Writers & Readers Festival

Helping Children with Learning Disabilities Upper NZI Room, Aotea Centre The Canadian Arrowsmith Program is founded on the philosophy that it is possible to treat learning disabilities by identifying and strengthening cognitive capacities. Based on the personal experience of its developer, Barbara Arrowsmith Young, the program uses a series of exercises designed to strengthen weak cognitive capacities and improve associated learning dysfunctions. In this presentation designed for parents and teachers of children with learning disabilities, Arrowsmith Young, whose autobiography The Woman Who Changed Her Brain was published this year, will outline the principles and practices of her program. Introduced by tbc
