Why we need to measure brain health and vitality | Selena Bartlett | TEDxQUT

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. We use a body mass index (BMI) to measure our body's fitness but why don't we use a brain vitality index (BVI) to measure the health of our brain? Neuroscientist Professor Selena Bartlett examines how we can prevent brain aging and teach our brain positive lessons. Professor Selena Bartlett is a Group Leader in Addiction Neuroscience and Obesity at the Translational Research Institute at the Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation and a Research Capacity Building Professor in the School of Clinical Sciences, Faculty of Health, QUT. In 2013, she won the Outstanding Achievement Award and Biotech Research Award and is an Ambassador for the Women in Technology organization. She is passionate about the brain and helping people rewire their brains to unlock habits learnt over a lifetime that are holding them back from reaching their potential. She will discuss Brain Unlocked-how to reach your potential using tools from the latest research in neuroscience. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
