Assuring Psychological Safety
06/01/20 • 44 min
Kieran O’Mahony, PhD, is a Learning Scientist in Cognitive Neuroscience. He’s mapped and scientifically demonstrated how the brain accepts – that’s important – information, and how learners' brains love to learn.
Today’s most high-value work is cognitive in nature. This means, if you’re a thinker, you’re more valuable. The problem is, you’ve never been taught to think. You’ve only been told to think.
Dr. O'Mahony outlines the rewards for the business, the workers, how it's done (in a matter of days!) and what to expect.
Innovative companies are recognizing these 21st-Century Learning skills and benefitting from immense savings across the enterprise. They’re adapting their culture to learner-centric frameworks that not only make it safe to learn, they become fun and rewarding for all.
Five-time Emmy Award-Winning journalist, Sheila Hamilton from Beyond Well with Sheila Hamilton, the fastest growing mental health podcast in the world, visits with Rich on how to avoid or defend an Amygdala hijack by giving you a world-class view of what is, and why you control it.

The Visual Language of Comics
04/17/20 • 41 min
Neil Cohn joins us today as the internationally recognized researcher on the overlap of sequential images and language in cognition.
How comics make you think.
Human beings have three ways they can create thoughts to each other:
2) Body Movements, Gestures
That's it. "What about words!?!" you may ask. Neil Cohn shows us why words are unnatural, hard to learn, and why we've such problems with them. In addition, we open you up to an amazing 'new' language you've worked with before you could write; comics.
Educational Change Starts Now. With Me.
11/10/19 • 50 min
Missy Widmann has always had a passion for education, technology, neuroscience, health, fitness, and community. Fortunately, her newest endeavor includes all of them. Missy currently serves as an educational consultant, supporting teachers and schools in integrative technology and connecting neuroscience to teaching and learning. She is also embarking on an adventure as a board member and presenter at Neural Education. Her collaboration in Neural Education includes developing a platform for the Challenge Mosaic Brain Engagement model, creating open education resources, and providing innovative professional development for our educational community. The vision of Neural Education is to promote equity and personalization for K-20+ education.
Avoiding The Dangers of Measurement
10/18/19 • 43 min
Science looks at labeling and stratification and sees dangers defined as limiting the learner and the facilitator. As we at Brain-centric Design like to say; Diversity Of Learning...placing the value on thoughts and experiences around a concept and discussing that paradigm after multiple perspectives have been presented to the learner, perspectives that attach to each lobe of the brain, to assure cognitive rehearsal and that chance to report out those findings to another.

Brain Fog & Your Gut
09/11/19 • 49 min
Dr. Steven R Gundry is best known for his claims that lectins, a type of plant protein found in numerous foods, cause inflammation resulting in many modern diseases. Today we explore why what you're eating may be handicapping your brain function.
Also known as brain fog or mental fog, clouding of consciousness is something you control. The sufferer experiences a subjective sensation of mental clouding described as feeling "foggy".
What you eat is how you think, and how you think is how you are.
Implementing Brain-centric Design
09/03/19 • 60 min
With all change in the world, did you ever think there would be a new way of acquiring and applying knowledge and skills? Advancements in neuroscience led to the cognitive learning sciences. Brain-centric Design is this methodology for business. A basic two-part process of organizing your information so the brain accepts it, and then delivering in a way that people love to learn.
If you present information in a classroom, online, management meeting, sales pitch, teaching your child something, here's what to expect when your growth mindset realizes that making sure all information delivered is not only retained but becomes the learners' information.
Birth of Cognitive Learning Sciences
09/02/19 • 27 min
Kieran O'Mahony details the history of the Cognitive Learning Science pedagogic model of Brain-centric Design, and why it is changing the way people think, learn and educate another. Kieran's journey of discovery is now changing the way we acquire and apply knowledge & skills in K-12 schools and corporate learning environments.
Brain-centric Design owes much to the scientists who, in the 1950s, were aware that the preeminent philosophy underpinning learning and learning systems (behaviorism with a capital B) was not living up to multidimensional claims and, in effect, was an outdated modality for engaging brain and human cognition.
The Brain As A Learning Tool
08/31/19 • 56 min
There is a new way to learn.
Twenty-first Century learners will be based in cognition, required to have adaptive expertise as well as a growth mindset. The problem is K-12 and business learning still us a model of learning that continues to not deliver the learners they need.
Brain-centric Design's Kieran O'Mahony outlines the BcD framework and its culmination of decades of science and research distilled into a simple easy-to-use method. The processes and practices articulated in this podcast have evolved over time from many interweaving fields of literature and research. In this way, the end product stems from a breadth and depth of visionary scientific endeavors and outcomes.
Without the major contributions of researchers and innovators within many boundary-crossing disciplines, BcD and its connection with modern understanding of how the learning brain works would be nowhere close to where they are today.
The Heart of the Dog
08/31/19 • 65 min
One of the secrets to getting any brain's attention, is to first answer this question for the person about to receive your message: “What’s in it for me, here and now?” How does the world's greatest marketer use this sexy brain bit from Brain-centric Design to get your brain's attention in their marketing messages?
For that answer, Rich Carr called the very best, Roy H. Williams. Roy H. Williams is a best selling author and marketing consultant best known for his Wizard of Ads trilogy. He is the founder of the Wizard Academy institute near Austin, Texas. Williams produces and publishes a free weekly column and podcast titled the Monday Morning Memo.
