I. Enable neuroscience knowledge translation to the community:
High-impact translational knowledge is offered to the general public through our Public Café Scientifique and our club: Informal discussion about neuroscientific subjects. They are not intended to be lectures. They provide insight into normal and health-related issues of popular interest to the general public, and in turn provoke questions and provide answers.
If you want to take part in endoxa neuroscience Café Scientifique, there is no need for you to have a science degree. You just need to have a deep-rooted desire to talk about a particular brain subject. That way you could learn how neuroscience research may provide answers to any questions that are on your mind.
Learning-based self-understanding and self-assessment through neuroscience are endoxa neuroscience’s priority. Neuroscience research findings, presented in a lay language, constitute the building blocks on which we rely in proposing to optimize educational and vocational outcomes in brain disorders. An integrated approach (neuroscience community-public community) is needed to foster early self-regulatory capacities, which are the foundations for learning in later development.
For example, during early childhood and adolescence, interventions targeted to promote cognitive, language, motor, or sensory development can be critical, depending on the nature of the child’s capacities. Specifically social development and integration into the peer group is central. Childhood and adolescence are critical periods of robust brain development when emerging neural networks are highly vulnerable to the effects of genetic and environmental challenges.
Most importantly, parents may struggle with discipline and imposing structure issues, hence counseling, using the latest neuroscience findings, would be essentially important in providing guidance.
II. Catalyze neuroscience education:
Bringing neuroscience beyond academic universities to classrooms in colleges, museums, universities, hospitals and socio-medical institutes is an essential service provided by our enterprise.
Our task is to be a catalyst: to bring neuroscience knowledge to practice, hence supporting and enabling the kind of interaction that releases energy and produces innovation in brain-related care.
We provide our clients with the neuroscientific tools that may help them to accelerate their success and amplify their impact.
Most brain disorders (including personality change) manifest early in life, however their effects are typically life long, affecting educational achievement, quality of life, earning potential, and productivity across the life span. Costs include, outpatient health care services, long-term care, rehabilitation, and special education, as well as the indirect costs of morbidity and increased mortality, which constitute a burden on the individuals affected, their entire families, the healthcare system and ultimately the public.
Such burden is equally increasing on clinicians as they are asked to take a more active role. However, their management extends beyond the traditional boundaries of pharmacotherapy, to the understanding of the gene-brain-behavior triad.
Such an understanding is important for the effective practice of physicians, developmental psychologists, occupational and speech therapists, early child educators, social workers and most importantly to the person affected him/her-self.
Neuroscience findings may aid in setting treatment goals, suggesting further cutting-edge information about likely developmental trajectory and additional co-morbidities to anticipate.
III. Coach individuals and industrial organizations:
We offer to coach individuals at our enterprise and within their organizations, to use their brains more efficiently in order to achieve a greater level of success, productivity, creativity, and happiness at work and in life in general. We pursue empowering entrepreneurial and management capacity to build a thriving knowledge in neuroeconomy, neuromarketing and neuromanagement.
To that end, we incorporate principles from:
– Cognitive neuroscience (e.g., increasing mental clarity, decision-making skills, and creative potential);
– Affective neuroscience (e.g., using emotional intelligence; reducing stress and stress-related brain damage);
– Behavioral & Social neuroscience (e.g., effects of sleep and physical activity on the brain, enhancing social relationships for team building and community development).
