Mind Over Matters: How Habits Change the Brain
Habits have many upsides, though old habits—and often, bad habits—die hard. Duke Neurologist Nicole Calakos will discuss the good, the bad and the ugly of habits and what changes in our brain when we develop them.
Nicole Calakos, MD, PhD is an Associate Professor of Neurology and Neurobiology at Duke University. Her laboratory studies how parts of the brain undergo long-lasting changes in response to experience and how diseases disrupt this process.
