The neuroscience of new beginnings: how do our brains help us to adapt to a new way of life?
By Dr Samantha J. Brooks Ph.D.
The new pandemic era of 2021 – which will hopefully bring vaccination to Africa soon – will at the very least teach us to adapt to the simple pleasures of everyday life that we may have forgotten in the busier lifestyles we led in pre-covid times. So, let’s see this as a real positive, as a way to enjoy our new social lives, as we continue to survive. Happy New Year Harfielders!
