Our brains change as we age, making it significantly harder to learn – but it doesn’t mean an old dog can’t learn new tricks!
There are smarter ways to learn than whatever it is you are doing right now. Lila will take you on a journey through the brain, examining some of the existing research on learning, and empower you with tools that help you learn faster and more effectively.
