Michael Ostrolenk speaks with Dr. Dee Joy Coulter, a nationally recognized neuroscience educator known for her unique ability to present complex ideas in clear and humorous ways that are useful for her audiences. Dr. Coulter discusses COVID-19 and the cognitive complexity that would be necessary to adequately deal with the pandemic. Most importantly, it would require a body-mind connection that allows us to approach ideas as complex systems, to have the foresight to anticipate and plan for such events. While we are likely to walk away from this pandemic having cultivated new skills, our society will also need to hone higher order thinking to better prepare for likely similar future events.
