This week we'll be talking about the way words can (and do) actually change our brain. For example, a recent study found that just seeing a list of negative words can make an anxious or depressed person feel worse. What's more, focusing on negative words and thoughts can actually damage important brain structures related to learning, memory and emotions. Conversely, focusing on positive words and thoughts (even illogical ones) builds positive brain structures. 

Join us for a lively discussion of the impact of words on consciouness and the brain!
