Blue Mind links neuroscience and psychology with nature in profoundly important new ways. The result is an exciting, fast-growing new field we call Neuroconservation.
But the benefits of this inquiry extend to public health, education, parenting, business, coastal planning, travel, real estate, sports and recreation, and most importantly rebuilding our personal, emotional connection with and restoring healthy waterways.
Blue Mind helps everyone working with and for our blue planet to do their jobs better by providing deeper insights into the science of "our brains on water". We expand the "ecosystem services" conversation to include the vast array of cognitive values and benefits offered by clean, healthy waterways.
Each year we hold a Blue Mind Summit, bringing together top neuroscientists, oceanographers, explorers, economists, educators, and artists to consider new questions about the "human brain on water".
