Andrea Kuszewski shares her tips on designing your life for continuous cognitive enhancement. Is it possible to increase your intelligence? Absolutely. Do you need technology or cognitive enhancers to accomplish this? Absolutely not. Science shows us that the key to cognitive improvement is keeping your brain active and challenged, while making learning intrinsically rewarding. In this presentation, Andrea Kuszewski will discuss her Five Principles of Cognitive Enhancement, a paradigm Kuszewski developed over 10 years as a behavioral therapist, teaching children how to reach their maximum cognitive potential. Kuszewski explains why fluid intelligence is important and how it can be improved, by designing a lifestyle for constant, motivating, and rewarding learning experiences. Increasing intelligence takes work, but it is simpler than you may think–and anyone can get smarter, no matter where you start from."
