Your Mind in Motion: How Brains Adapt to a Changing World

David Gow, TEDx Salem State University

Meet the improvisational brain! A picture can't capture what brains really do, but a movie just might. Professor David Gow reveals how dramatic new imaging tools show us the way complex brain networks continually reorganize to adapt to our changing experience. David Gow is a brain researcher at the Massachusetts General Hospital and a professor of psychology at Salem State University. With an eclectic background in psychology, linguistics, speech acoustics and cognitive neuroscience, Gow builds and uses analytic tools to gain deeper insight into the complex interplay between knowledge and perception in language understanding. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
