From The Conference August 22, 2013

Sara Bengtsson, PhD, Assistant Professor at Karolinska Institute, Sweden, is doing research which involves developing a neuroscientific model of self-esteem. She uses brain imaging techniques (fMRI), behavioural measures, and mathematical modeling for this purpose. Sara and her group have found that when performing cognitive tasks, it is particularly when we make errors that there is an interaction between the currently active self-image and task performance.

Learning new things is essential for humans. It's both fun and necessary to be part of a fast changing society. Even the Swedish prime minister is talking about the importance of being able to change carrier late in life. Hear from a brain scientist and a Psychologist about how our body and brain learn new things.
