Helena Boschi is a psychologist who focuses on applied neuroscience in the work place.
Her particular areas of interest include the brain and behaviour, our emotional and rational neural networks and how to improve our cognitive abilities in order to get the best out of our own and others’ brainpower.
Helena is currently investigating the impact of chronic stress on brain function to help individuals understand and manage their physical and cognitive resources during today’s
business climate of ongoing change and uncertainty. Helena is a member of the British Psychological Society and brings a scientific edge to the work she delivers and continues to apply the latest developments in the fields of psychology, neuroscience and behaviour to the
: In a world where we are never ‘off’ we simply do not have the brainpower to attend to each and every input. So as we sift through and filter what we hope will be useful and relevant we may unknowingly discard what we actually do need to help us interpret new incoming information. As a consequence we may make faulty decisions and miss vital clues to help us deal accurately with what is in front of us.
Helena’s presentation will cover aspects of neuropsychology and how it applies to our behaviour at work. Including how the brain ‘sees’, interprets and filters information, how we pay attention and cannot multi-task, how we make decisions and are susceptible to cognitive distortions and biases. She will examine the danger of expertise and why we need sleep, exercise and positive energy to maintain a healthy and agile brain.
