ASMALLWORLD Members are invited to join an online webinar on "The Extended Mind: The Power of Thinking Outside the Brain" with guest speaker Annie Murphy Paul, as part of our Webinars Series.

"Use your head." That’s what we tell ourselves when facing a tricky problem or a difficult project. But a growing body of research indicates that we’ve got it exactly backwards. What we need to do, says science writer Annie Murphy Paul, is think outside the brain. A host of “extra-neural” resources—the feelings and movements of our bodies, the physical spaces in which we learn and work, and the minds of those around us— can help us focus more intently, comprehend more deeply, and create more imaginatively.

This webinar, based on Paul's acclaimed new book, The Extended Mind, will outline the research behind this exciting new vision of human ability, exploring the findings of neuroscientists, cognitive scientists, psychologists, and examining the practices of educators, managers, and leaders who are already reaping the benefits of thinking outside the brain. She will excavate the untold history of how artists, scientists, and authors—from Jackson Pollock to Jonas Salk to Robert Caro—have used mental extensions to solve problems, make discoveries, and create new works. Join her as she offers a dramatic new view of how our minds work, full of practical advice on how we can all think better.

Tune in to this webinar on Wednesday, November 17th at 20:00 CET (20:00 Zurich, 19:00 London, 14:00 New York).
