Health & Wellness “Pathways: Art and the Brain” Presented by MD Anderson Cancer Center
Thursday, May. 2, 2019 – Thursday, May. 2, 2019
06:30 PM – 08:00 PM
Presented by Sarah Prinsloo, Ph.D., LMFT, LPC, assistant professor, department of Palliative, Rehabilitation and Integrative Medicine, Division of Cancer Medicine, MD Anderson Cancer Center
In this exciting health and wellness program all about the brain, Sarah Prinsloo presents on her work in neuromodulation—examining novel approaches to changing the brain. Her presentation covers current research on inducing neuroplasticity, which is the brain’s ability to adapt and reorganize itself by forming new connections and pathways throughout life. Prinsloo discusses the ways in which neuroplasticity can impact our lives by reducing chronic pain, alleviating symptoms of mood disorders, and even helping the brain heal after injury. She reviews insights and findings from her work as a therapist as well as her clinical trials.
Following Prinsloo’s presentation, head into the galleries of the Museum’s Audrey Jones Beck Building for an art-inspired brain game. Challenge yourself to create new pathways through the Museum’s galleries, and solve a puzzle along the way.
About Sarah Prinsloo
Sarah Prinsloo’s expertise is in applied neuroscience, specifically the integration of electroencephalographic (EEG) neuroimaging and non-invasive neuromodulation techniques including neurofeedback and transcranial magnetic stimulation. Since 2015, upon her appointment to Assistant Professor, she has established a laboratory at MD Anderson Cancer Center that focuses on various neuromodulation techniques. Her research program is focused on the determination of central nervous system effects of chemotherapy, pre-surgical mapping for brain tumor patients after resection, and the effects of neuromodulatory techniques to augment recovery for each of these conditions.
