Using Meditation to Disrupt Addictive Behaviors
Martha Sullivan, Thornton Marketing
This session will start with a brief period of silent meditation, followed by a discussion about the neuroscience of stress, the underlying discomforts and triggers that drive addictive behaviors, suggestions for how to alleviate those discomforts, and how meditation helps us release and recover from stress. Functional MRIs of "normal” brains have been compared to the brains of monks who have spent thousands of hours meditating, and there are marked differences. Regular meditation practice changes the pre-frontal cortex of the brain, strengthening the left side, where positive emotions reside. There is also evidence of significant changes in the area of the brain that is essential for sustaining attention. Toward the end of the session, there will be a guided meditation.

The Neuroscience of Decision-Making in the Practice of Law
Kimberly Papillon, Esq.
Did you know that scientists have scanned people’s brains as they make decisions and that these scans tell us what keeps us from effectively strategizing on cases and solving problems, motivates us, scares us and fools us? How can we use these studies to help attorneys to make effective and efficient decisions even under extreme pressure and to act fairly in our global society? In this highly interactive course participants will explore emerging research in neuroscience and how it affects decision-making. Brain imaging studies will be used to explain how attorneys make decisions in litigation and transactional law. The course will explore how reactions in our brains affect our assessments of threat, intelligence, veracity, and competence. The course will identify ways to increase fairness guided by science.
