    In this webinar, Dr. Whitecraft will draw upon the works of Hammond, Gorski and Hebb to demonstrate how experiences that are intense, prolonged or repeated will physically change the anatomy and the chemistry of the brain. We can think of culture as the software that programs the hardware-- the brain. We will also explore the different parts of the brain to better understand the evolution of the brain and why Maslow must come before Bloom. Through an understanding of social neuroscience, we will discuss different cultural archetypes and the chemicals that promote or inhibit learning. Finally, we will share beautiful footage of neurons participating in the re-wiring of the brain as well as culturally responsive practices that promote the growth of new neural networks.
