Transform Your Mind, Change Your Brain


Dr. Richard Davidson




In this talk, Richard J. Davidson will explore recent scientific research on the neuroscience of positive human qualities and how they can be cultivated through contemplative practice.



Uh, good afternoon, my friends. My name is Ming and I'm the Jo Legal Fellow of Google. I'm so delighted today to welcome my friend, an amazing human being, Dr. Richie Davidson. There's so much I can say about Richie and I don't, I'm not even sure where to begin, so I'll just give you the big picture.

Um, Richie is the William James and Villas research professor of psychology and psychiatry at the University of, uh, Wisconsin Medicine. Rich's work is so important that. It is changing the world and will continue to change the world in very important ways. Early in his career, Richie did pioneering work, which found that certain parts of the brain were specially linked to positive and negative emotions.
