This is a time of unprecedented access to high-reward, high-dopamine stimuli: drugs, food, news, gambling, shopping, gaming, texting, Facebooking, Instagramming, YouTubing, tweeting . . . The increased numbers, variety, and potency are staggering. As such, we’ve all become vulnerable to compulsive overconsumption. Yet, it is possible to find contentment and connectedness by keeping dopamine in check.
In this talk, Professor Anna Lembke will provide a practical, science-informed approach to addressing compulsive overconsumption of everything from food to sex, to video games. Q&A will follow her presentation.
This course provides an overview of cognitive adaptive intelligence and its application in rehab, focusing on sports rehab.

Advances in neuroscience and artificial intelligence are converging to give us an affordable and soon-to-be widely available generation of consumer neurotech devices—a catchall term for gadgets that, with the help of dry electrodes, connect human brains to computers and the ever-more-sophisticated algorithms that analyze the brain-wave data.
These advances are being incorporated into the workplace to track everything from fatigue levels, mental wellbeing in employees to transforming wellness programs at work. What does this mean for the future of work? What are the best practices for integrating these advances responsibly into the workplace and society?
