The Power of Mindset: How it Can Affect your Health, Aging, and Happiness

This talk describes cutting edge research on the power of one’s mindset – literally meaning the setting of the mind towards a particular set of expectations – on influencing thoughts, feelings, and behavior.

You’ll learn how making subtle tweaks in mindset can lead children to perform better on challenging math tests, college students to show improvements in their vision, and older adults to score higher on memory tasks. You’ll also learn about the substantial impact of mindset on physical health. Would you believe that simple shifts in mindset can lead to faster walking speeds, decreases in blood pressure and body fat, and increases in life expectancy? Then you’ll have a chance to complete a Stress Mindset Measure to learn more about how you tend to think about stress, and how that tendency impacts your own physiological stress response.

Finally, and most importantly, you’ll learn specific (and relatively easy) strategies for changing your own mindset, which can lead to better psychological and physical well-being.

Women in the American Revolution: Remarkable Stories You've Never Heard

Women of the American Revolution: Remarkable Stories You’ve Never Heard

This talk puts to rest another of the remarkable myths of the American Revolution: that it was an all male affair.  In fact, the politicization of women in the 1760s and 1770s is one of the most striking consequences of the rebellion against British rule. Women made the boycotts of British imports work. They picketed merchants who dared to sell British cloth and tea. They produced homespun or “Liberty cloth” as they called it — willingly engaging in the single most boring task known to colonial America.

Women wrote propaganda, from plays to poetry; they signed petitions — not as Mrs. so-and-so, but with their own names, a fact that horrified conservative colonists everywhere. Women and children flocked to the army each winter and transformed army camps into instant cities. Here they did the nursing, the cooking and the washing. Women served as spies, as couriers, and as soldiers. And, thus for the first time schools were created for females. And, as we all know, education is a dangerous thing. It was the next generation who demanded equality.

Music and the Brain: The Neuroscience of Melodies, Themes, and Rhythms

Charles Darwin regarded music as an evolutionary mystery. It is universal and ancient in human culture, but serves no obvious biological function.

Recent decades have witnessed a rise of empirical research on the biological foundations of music, leading to findings which help illuminate music’s evolutionary origins and its significance in human life.

In this lecture, Professor Aniruddh Patel of Tufts University and author of Music, Language, and the Brain will discuss a wide variety of research studies bearing on the evolution and biological power of music.

These will include studies of how music is processed by other species, and studies of how active engagement with music enhances brain function in children and adults, including both neurologically normal individuals and those with brain disorders.
