Does “Brain Training” Really Work?

Thursday10/216:30 pm - 7:30 pm

“Brain Training” has become a huge industry with hundreds of thousands of individuals using various products worldwide. In this talk at Augusta Memorial Public Library, Professor C. Shawn Green will cover what the science in this field really says about what is best for your brain health.

Green is an associate professor at UW-Madison’s College of Letters & Science in the Department of Psychology.

He received his B.A., M.A. and Ph.D. in brain and cognitive sciences from the University of Rochester. He then completed postdoctoral training in computer vision and machine learning at the University of Minnesota, before joining the psychology faculty at UW-Madison in 2011. His research focuses on how to improve individuals’ perceptual and cognitive skills both via purposefully designed training regimens as well as commercial off-the-shelf video games.

At this event, Professor Green will speak virtually but will be projected on a large screen at the library.  Please contact the library if you plan to attend in person.

Program will livestream at www.youtube.com/user/AMPLWI with a recording available for free on demand viewing at a later date.
