Ellen Langer, Ph.D. from Yale, is a Harvard Professor of Psychology and artist. She is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and three Distinguished Scientist Awards, the World Congress Award, the NYUAlumni Achievement Award, and the Staats award for Unifying Psychology, and has authored eleven books and over 200 research articles on the illusion of control, perceived control, successful aging, decision-making, to name a few of the topics. Each of these is examined through the lens of her theory of mindfulness. Her research has demonstrated that by actively noticing new things—the essence of mindfulness—health, well being, and competence follow. Her best selling books include Mindfulness; The Power of Mindful Learning; On Becoming an Artist: Reinventing Yourself Through Mindful Creativity; and her most recent book, Counterclockwise: Mindful Health and the Power of Possibility.
The 2010 NeuroLeadership Summit explored the theme of "Rethinking Leadership" and was held from 26-28 October in Boston, USA. Themes of earlier Summits have been "Witness the Birth of a New Discipline", "Making New Connections" and "Toward Integration".
