Kick off your ACEP23 experience with an exciting opening session that could change the way you and your brain work together. Did you know our brains are wired to take short cuts that sometimes lead to cognitive distortions? Understanding how and why our biases work is an important first step in improving our decision-making, determining information we’re willing to trust, and building relationships. Using a blend of neuroscience, behavioral economics and real-world examples, Dr. Helena Boschi, a world-renowned applied neuroscience psychologist, will empower you to train your brain, cut through the clutter and circumvent your bias.
