Neuroscience Clubs + CoreBrain Journal = Future Vision
It is impossible to begin to learn that which one thinks one already knows.
In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, in the expert’s there are but few.
~ Shunryu Suzuki
Clubby We’re Not. Interesting We Are. Neuroscience Clubs Provide Fresh Maps
Neuroscience clubs can significantly improve your academic experience. Start young. Since you’re here, use this page to encourage your next steps. Listen up and see what you think. Ask questions below if I can help out. Develop a synthetic plan. Start to connect the dots. We will help you get where you’re going.
It doesn’t’ matter if you’re in high school, college, or graduate school, our thought-provoking, experienced, and informed guests will provide you and your colleagues with regularly scheduled neuroscience insights, links, and a foundation for your next team discussions. Your contributions here will grow your insights beyond your Neuroscience Club to connect you with the real world of measured, peer-reviewed neuroscience change – globally.
How to Start Neuroscience Clubs
The synthesizing mind takes information from disparate resources, understands and evaluates that information objectively, and puts it together in ways that make sense to the synthesizer and also to other persons.
~ Howard Gardner – Five Minds for the Future
Often, in my offline conversations, many of our experienced colleagues completely agree that the time to start thinking about dramatically improving brain and biomedical investigations are while you’re young, even before your curiosity lights fully turn to more specific disciplines in young adult/mid-life.
Interchangeable Synonyms For ‘Neuroscience’
We instill in children the misconception that science is memorizing the names of things. That’s an aspect of it but not the core. The core is understanding objects. Get that into your six-year-old , and you’ve got nothing more to teach them.
~ Neil deGrasse Tyson – Astrophysicist
- Perspective – Last time I checked, the mind was connected with the body. Comprehensive is the new, inclusive, synesthetic perspective to help you embrace your/our future. Traditional and functional wars are outdated.
- Neuroscience – The entire field of variables and measurements that affect brain function, human emotions, behaviors, and cognition. Multiple analytic tools for analysis apply at a variety of neurophysiologic paths. Measurement details matter.
- Mind Science – Less linguistically challenging, yet under the same expanded, comprehensive umbrella – but also includes less hard, data-driven mind-management contributions such as yoga and meditation.
- Brain Science – Focused almost entirely on the brain itself, measured, for example, with SPECT imaging and/or methylation variables.
- Biomedical Sciences – Connects how measurable, more precise body variables affect brain function. For years many thought in one-sided terms – that the mind created physical challenges. Today we well know the body affects brain function. To overlook that contribution, that balanced connection, is to remain in the dark ages of mind science.
Your Club Meeting Structure & Process – Leadership Opportunities
By teaching others you will learn yourself.
~ George Gurdjieff
Start soon to review selected CBJ Episodes through Search here at CBJ for discussions at your school Neuroscience Clubs. Discover your various interests and dig into them. Step up. Push forward. Get after it.
- For junior high/high school, you may need to check with your administration to connect with a particular teacher to introduce club activities.
- Review this Neuroscience Club PDF, download & print, and use it as a reference for beginning your club.
- Consider posting this Poster/Announcement and publicly, with date and time, for your first meeting to encourage interest.
- Each week two new Clubs Episode topics will come to your machines and our updated Episode Archive provides many past topics and key issues. CoreBrain Journal is not a live/streaming program, so you can access it on any device at any time.
Preparation For Leadership – Suggestions For Growth Through Management.
- Before you begin your meetings my strongest suggestion is: Read Six Thinking Hats by Dr. Edward de Bono to formulate how your student leaders and attendees will manage group discussions. Discipline and self-management begin in the meeting process. First, settle your Club process then hit the details.
- Consider meeting once or twice a month to discuss selected Episode topics agreed upon before each next meeting – you decide on frequency, a length of time for meetings, and who will present/lead the first session.
- Then consider the option to pass the group leadership responsibility around for practicing speaking and leading the discussion by selecting a TR [Topic Review] person for each meeting – good practice for later in life. Once you understand de Bono group leadership skills, anyone can do it.
- Each TR will prepare an Episode Overview for the team and become responsible for leading the discussion – and perhaps adding additional information to the Topic for that evening. Basic format: Everyone is welcome to prepare and contribute their perspectives during the meeting, and at the end of the session, participants select/agree on the next Episode for review.
- Your team will appreciate this timeless book to encourage both perspective and persistence: The Obstacle is the Way – The Timeless Art of Turning Trials into Triumph by Ryan Holiday
Neuroscience Club Focus: Schedule Each Meeting’s Content
- In fact, everyone in attendance will have the opportunity to review each specific Episode [or Episode Themes such as Vets | or Teens], form opinions and conclusions by listening to that published Episode, or by adding their own Google insights on that particular Topic for discussion at each Club meeting.
- Everyone in any meeting can contribute ideas, links, observations, and helpful insights.
- If you find your Episode discussion constructive, consider Sharing it with our CBJ global audience – how to Share below.
Bonus Goal: Share Your Club Insights With Our Global CoreBrain Journal Audience
- In other words, our CoreBrain Journal Team welcomes Student Guests for interviews, one every two months, to contribute an interesting audio report/interview from their school meetings/discussions to our entire global CoreBrain Journal podcast audience – in more than 90 countries. The Plan: Do additional team research, and tell us what else you learned in your next investigations. You can teach us a thing or two.
- Now is the time to stand up and render your opinion on an audio/Skype/Zoom interview and share your group learning discussions with others.
- There I will personally welcome you as a Guest and will encourage/support sharing your Club insights. We will screen submissions and select student Club-Guests for creativity, insight, and their contribution to the larger questions in mind science. We welcome your fresh ideas and additional perspectives. It’s an opportunity to share what you’ve learned with other Neuroscience Club members globally. Let’s plan for that conversation. You don’t have to be a neuroscience expert to have an opinion.
- Be sure to sign up here ↓ to stay posted. Neuroscience progress will continue to dramatically evolve in your lifetime.
- Teamwork for your club starts now – ask your friends to check for their mutual interest in mind science and get started.
- Core Brain Journal--NeuropsychologyMay 25, 2017 by Dr Terry James Gingras from United States
Just finished session 118 with neuropsychologist, Dr. Braun. Excellent content presented in a relaxed style. I'm a neuropsychoogist with a specialization In ADHD so I appreciate both Dr. Parker's and Dr. Braun's efforts demystifying the practice of neuropsychology.
- Exceptional interviews !!May 16, 2017 by MCVGRL from United States
Core Brain Journal, with Dr. Charles Parker is a must listen for a wide audience. If you are either the individual, suffering from complex personal medical/ psychological issues; or a family member, friend... please tune in often.
- Podcast 107 (Brain Health) - Very informative!April 13, 2017 by ad1978mke from United States
I especially liked this Podcast because it provided a wealth of valuable brain health research and tips in an approachable, easy-to-listen-to format. The rapport between the Guest Speaker (Dr. Braun) and Host (Dr. Parker) was evident, and I hope to hear another Podcast with this Guest Speaker!
- Top quality informationFebruary 5, 2017 by MD Ireland from Ireland
As a functional medicine doc I found this iterview stimulating, inspiring and it is full of clinically useful information
- FascinatingFebruary 1, 2017 by jinki1 from United States
If you love science and psychology, then this is for you. The brain is such a mysterious machine, and listening to experts discuss how it works is fascinating. This seems like a pick-and-choose type podcast: I'll skip the shows focusing on estrogen and alzeimer's and go for creativity, anxiety, music, and others. But what I've listened to so far is great.
- My Brain Thanks You!January 13, 2017 by B. Keenan Johnston from United States
Thanks for shedding some much needed light on issues of the brain. I recently became interested in the subject when I was listening to NPR do a segment on neuroplasticity. I could never remember the name of the author, but it helped me find this great podcast!
- Flipping Junkie ReviewDecember 23, 2016 by Danny Johnson -Flipping Junkie from United States
Awesome podcast! I really loved the bipolar episode. Wonderful insight into these issues. Keep up the good work!
- “How I Found Myself” Dean RobertsDecember 2, 2016 by Don Hutcheson from United States
I just had the pleasure of listening to Dr. Charles Parker’s latest interview with Mr. Dean Roberts on the topic: “How I Found Myself.” The thesis of this remarkable podcast is that the difference between treatment success and failure for conditions such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, PTSD and others is often the result of omitting crucial brain, biomedical, and functional neuroscience information and insights. Well done and much-needed. Wish you continuing success!
- I may be a geek...November 19, 2016 by JHHealy from United States
