Ever wondered whether neurodiversity, music festivals, and EEG could be combined? Curious how Fortnite could be used as a neuroscientific tool?
Come by our poster session from 5-7pm on Friday, September 28 to find out!
Founder Eli Ricker will be giving a talk, running a breakout session, and holding office hours, so come on by!
Topics: self-experiments, Say to Do scores, Life Satisfaction scores, EEG, meditation, neurofeedback, and more...
Talk: Tracking What I Do Versus What I Say I'll Do
For years, Eli Ricker has tracked her self-created "Life Satisfaction" score and whether or not she did what she said she would. She’ll describe what this practice taught her about effective goal setting, true productivity, and deeper satisfaction.
Time & Location: Saturday, September 22 in Session 3 from 2-3pm at Location: THREE
Breakout Discussion: Self-Tracking vs. Self-Experimenting—When Is the Extra Work Worth It?
When does it make sense to construct a self-experiment? What are the advantages of tracking a metric over a long period of time? Let's talk about practical considerations for doing both well.
Time & Location: Sunday, September 23 in Session 5 from 10:30-11:30am at Location: THREE
Office Hours: Research on Meditation and Neurofeedback
I'm sharing my research on how meditation and neurofeedback affect cognitive performance, mood, and productivity. Ask me about what the research found and what the implications are.
Time & Location: Sunday, September 23 from 1-2pm at Lunch Office Hours location (ask staff)
Ever wanted to see your own brain waves and build the device that lets you do it? Wanted to learn how your mental performance changes over time -- and run that experiment at home? We'll bring together gurus and novices to teach, share, and explore together. You'll have a chance to build your own device and self-experiments so you can give a presentation at the Show & Tell...
Show & Tell
Either taking what you built at the Hackathon or something you've been learning about on your own, share whatever surprisingly effective things you have done to improve your own learning ability -- we're open to multiple takes. From polyphasic sleep to study tricks to CRISPR research to tDCS to...whatever you've tried. Share your successes, failures, and findings. We'll be scheduling this event after Brain-Hackathon so you have time to push your hackathon projects to a stopping point.
