Neuroscience of Play(ground)
Orange County Convention Center, Hall E1
When we play, the prefrontal cortex of our brain is
stimulated. This is the part of the brain that helps us cope with challenges,
face uncertainty and problem-solve. Being actively engaged in play can boost
feelings of joy and well-being. We also have the neurochemical dopamine to
thank for those “positive vibes” we often feel while spending time outside. Stop
by to play some games, build with Legos or Play Dough, or take a virtual walk
in the park or on the beach. The Neuroscience of (Play)ground will help you relax
and reframe your thinking with the positive neurological benefits of play.
