Your Brain is Plastic: A Live Q&A With Neuroscientist David Eagleman

On August 26th, world-renowned neuroscientist David Eagleman will join The Lavin Agency for a stimulating Q&A session discussing his latest book Livewired: The Inside Story of the Ever-Changing Brain.  

How can a child function with only one half of his brain? What does drug withdrawal have to do with a broken heart? And can a blind person really learn how to see using his tongue? The answer to those questions—and many more—lie in David Eagleman’s hotly anticipated book Livewired. Combining decades of research on brain plasticity with new scientific discoveries coming from his own lab, Eagleman shatters the text-book model of the brain we’ve all been taught to reveal a system that is dynamic, interwoven, and most importantly, self-modifying.


As one of the world’s best scientific translators, Eagleman masterfully takes readers and audiences alike through the leading edge of neuroscience—and best of all—applies his insights to our own lives. Join us on Wednesday, August 26th from 1pm—2pm EST (10am—11am PST) to learn more! You’ll never think about your brain the same way again.


Register for this one-time session HERE and you’ll immediately be entered to win a copy of the book!

New Speakers Heather Berlin and Nita Farahany Explore Neuroscience—and What It Means for Business.

How can business leaders better understand cognitive processes, thereby enhancing productivity, creativity, and performance? Introducing Lavin’s two newest neuroscience speakers, DR. HEATHER BERLIN and  NITA FARAHANY, whose science backgrounds—and unique takes on the brain—offer incredible new ways of thinking about workplace practices. Both of these exciting new speakers push the envelope as they talk about the brain, cognitive plasticity, and the intersection of tech and business. 

Heather Berlin |  The Human Brain and Its Future: What We Know and What We Don’t

Your brain perceives and decides on your behalf before you’ve even batted an eyelash says Heather Berlin. But that doesn’t mean you can’t own your choices with a little mindfulness and discipline. A cognitive neuroscientist and host of StarTalk All-Stars with Neil DeGrasse Tyson,  shows that by understanding the inner workings of our brains—what they’re good (and bad) at—we can discover solutions to some of our most common professional, creative, and social challenges, making us more productive, innovative, and in-control. As she demonstrates in her highly entertaining science talks, you are your brain, but you also have the power to shape it—and yourself.

Nita Farahany | Technology That Reads Minds: Motivation, Not Regulation in the Workplace


When the World Economic Forum, the United States Court of Appeals, and the United States Congress need to know the risks of cognitive enhancement and biometrics, they look to Nita Farahany, leading scholar on the ethical, legal, and social implications of emerging technologies. The Founding Director of Duke Science & Society, Chair of the Duke MA in Bioethics & Science Policy, and principal investigator of SLAPLAB, Farahany’s talks explore how these technological advances are scary, and amazing: she helps companies to get ahead of these issues, maximizing social benefits—while minimizing social harm. As tech converges with our bodies, we must embrace it responsibly and ethically, and Farahany’s fascinating, timely talks will show you how.
