No emotion, no learning. You forget information that does not excite your body.
Don't be fooled by neuromyths. Your brain continues to learn, even at old age.
Pursue creative projects. Keep studying. It will make you happy.
Exercise makes you smarter. Try 40 minutes, twice a week.
Only 10% of brain usage? It's a lie.
You use 100% of your brain every day.
Differentiate your instruction. Every brain is built different.
Sleep enhances insight. Sleep enhances creativity.
Stress is brain poison. Avoid prolonged stress.
Game playing is great for the brain.
Take breaks from work. Naps are good for the brain.
Humans are social creatures. Talk to inspiring people everyday.

The FAB8 Organizing Committee
The conference will be hosted jointly by the FAB Gakkai, Kyoto JALT, and the JALT BRAIN SIG. At the conference, you will hear speakers from all over Japan and indeed, all over the world, who will be talking on a wide range of topics which link neuroscience, psychology, and EFL. And of course, there will be plenty of opportunities to connect with other participants, to charge up your brain at special sessions, and to have fun! Applying the tenets of NeuroELT, we guarantee that this will be the most brain-friendly conference you have ever attended.
See you at FAB8!
