Dr. Leaf starts the talk by asking a question, “Can the mind change the Brain?”. This question led her to work with disabilities and traumatic brain injuries. While doing this work, she learned that thoughts are real things that take up real estate in the brain. Dr. Caroline Leaf shows us that the way we think is actually going to change the way your brain functions. She teaches us that, “You can not control the events and circumstances of your life, but you can control your reactions to those events and circumstances.”
