About Our Speaker
Dr. Irena O’Brien is a cognitive neuroscientist and has been studying psychology and neuroscience for over 20 years. After working as a chartered accountant for 15 years, she went back to university and obtained her PhD in Psychology from the Université du Québec à Montréal. While there, she conducted brain imaging and electrophysiological studies and went on to do a postdoctoral fellowship at the Centre for Language, Mind and Brain at McGill University.
Dr. Irena is passionate about neuroscience. She reads and writes about the latest research in neuroscience and psychology, which offer us practical tools and strategies that we can use to better our own lives and the lives of our our clients. She is a testament to that, continuing to use what she learns from neuroscience in her own life and that of her family.
Which is why she founded The Neuroscience School, a neuroscience training and information programme for coaches and health and wellness professionals, where she un-complicates neuroscience and teaches practical evidence-based tools and strategies her students can use in their practice. One of her pet peeves is the misinformation about neuroscience that floods the media and her goal is to right that wrong. Dr. Irena is particularly interested in how our lifestyle choices impact brain structure and function, affecting mood and cognitive functioning into old age. She is a firm believer that having a healthy brain and mind requires a healthy body.
