The Connectome: The Brain’s Road to Healing Trauma
Neurons don’t exist in isolation. In the human brain, 86 billion neurons form 100 trillion connections to each other — ironically, numbers that are far too large for the human brain to fathom. Connectomics aims to comprehensively map connections between neurons in the brain. This map of neural connections in the brain is known as the connectome. Join Sarah to learn more about the connectome and how knowing about it changes what we know about the brain and trauma healing.
This is primarily a learning and neuroscience content webinar, including a small number of actionable insights and healing process work. If you are seeking healing and resonance practice opportunities, please see Sarah’s upcoming courses here
Within the human brain, there are some 86 billion neurons making over 100 trillion connections to each other. Beginning to understand the connectome - the comprehensive map of connections between neurons in the brain, offers amazing insights into the neural circuits that underlie behavior. Understanding also provides valuable insights into the healing path and what is happening in the brain as we recover from trauma. The surprising thing about healing trauma is that we don’t erase anything from the brain – we just change the way the brain connects! Join Sarah Peyton for a 90-minute exploration of the latest science of brains and its implications for making brains good places to live after hard things happen – the connectome!
