Our understanding of superior mental performance has been transformed by cognitive science. In this talk, David Delany will both show us how these insights can be practically applied to enhance our own mental abilities and present provocative evidence that converging scientific and technological trends have driven humanity to the brink of a paradigm shift in how we learn, problem-solve, and innovate. Welcome to the cognitive revolution.
David Delany holds a PhD in computational neuroscience and has a research focus on the design of novel clinical brain training interventions for psychiatric disorders and cognitive enhancement. He lectures on cognitive science and statistics in Waterford Institute of Technology, Ireland.
