Neuroscience of behavior change and aware involvement of people with TBI in vision rehabilitation

Maybe you ask yourself why talking about the neuroscience of behavior change in the context of functional vision. As I often emphasized, the rehabilitation process is not linear, and smooth butt requires full awareness, engagement, and effort, and one of the most relevant steps to be taken is behavior change. According to Kagan, "Behaviour is the potential and expressed capacity - mentally, physically, and socially - of individuals or groups to respond to internal and external stimuli through their life." Behavior change is a challenging and complex process that takes time and requires a person to disrupt the current habit while simultaneously fostering a new set of actions.

The neuroscience of behavior change studies the brain processes in forming a new behavior underpinned by a neuroplastic change. Behavior change requires short, medium, and long-term setting goals. A neural circuit in the brain is responsible for orienting our thinking and actions toward particular goals and setting up new behavior: amygdala, lateral pre-frontal cortex, orbital-frontal cortex, and basal ganglia, according to Dr. Andrew D. Huberman, American neuroscientist and tenured associate professor in the Department of Neurobiology at the Stanford University School of Medicine, United States of America. I am very honored and proud to have had the chance to participate in a short presentation in the frame of the Neuroscience Coaching Network.

The neuroscience of behavior change was a group project, and I would like to thank Claudia Kowhoorn from Jouw Transformatie in the Netherlands for her great contribution. As a result of this group project, an interactive infographic has been produced that introduces the neuroscience of behavior change.

For those of you interested in accessing the interactive infographic, please do not hesitate to contact me.
