Science of Thought: Ted Talk – Caroline Leaf

Dr. Caroline Leaf is one of only three Christians asked to give a Ted Talk. Dr. Leaf starts the talk by asking a question, “Can the mind change the brain?” This question led her to work with traumatic brain injuries and disabilities . While doing this work, she learned that thoughts are real things that take up real estate in the brain. Dr. Leaf shows us that the way we think is actually going to change the way our brains function. 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.”
