Speakaboos is heading to the ASU GSV education summit in sunny San Diego, April 18-20. We’re passionate about motivating students to read more and develop a lifelong love of reading, a foundation for success academically and in life. If you’re attending the conference, we’d love to meet you and introduce our award-winning reading motivation platform.

4:00 – 5:00pm Mind Over Matter: The Rise of the Sciences – Neuro, Cognitive and Others – In Learning and What It Means for the Future of Education – Coronado E
The advent of new technologies allowing scientists to track the functioning of neurons in the brain have sparked new research projects around the world. Groups of cognitive scientists and neuroscientists have begun experimenting with game changing approaches that use fleets of molecule-size machines to measure and store brain activity at the cellular level – this has created a complete “map” of brain activity. Entrepreneurs have quickly taken the implications of brain research to its logical conclusion, using new technologies to cure cognitive disorders and improve learning outcomes.
